The website at www.chinoaz.net shows a circular seal with a white outer ring, with 'Town of' in black capitals at the top of the ring and 'Chino Valley, Arizona' at the bottom. At either side of this ring appear to be a green branch and a black rifle. The center of the seal is multicolored and features the head of a pronghorn antelope in brown and white. This is superimposed over a green field; to the right of the head is a small windmill in brown and gray and drawn out of proportion to the pronghorn's head. In the background is a brown mountain range, with a light blue sky overall. A slogan to the lower right of the pronghorn's head reads "Looking to the Future".

A pronghorn antelope shows that the Town of Chino Valley is looking to the future. The windmill represents the abundance of groundwater and the wind that blows across the rolling plains and foothills of our valley. A stalk of young corn stands for both our agricultural heritage and our growth as a Town. A cowboy's rope reminds us of the ranchers and cattle that built up this area and the strength and security of home.
The Town Symbol was designed by Bonnie Casey in approximately 1985. The symbol is on the town flag which is approximately 2 feet by 3 feet, white background, with tassels on the edge.
