The website at shows the seal in the standard circular format and consists of two concentric circles bordered both externally and internally in black. The outer ring contains the words 'CITY OF PACIFICA' in large black block lettering at the top, with the word 'INCORPORATED' similarly written at the bottom followed by a small B&W outline of a circle separating it from the date 'NOV. 22, 1957'.
