The website at www.ci.quartzsite.az.us shows an unusual seal. The center of the standard circular format consists of a large white capital letter 'Q', the tail of which extends outside both the center and also an outer concentric circle. The upper part of the circle within the 'Q' consists of a golden canyon wall beneath a dark brown mountain range fimbriated in gold, with a gold Q inscribed on it, both under a dark blue sky. The small space within the tail of the 'Q' is colored dark blue. This inner circle is encircled by an outer ring in black with
the words 'THE TOWN OF QUARTZSITE' in golden capital letters at the top of the ring, and the word 'ARIZONA' at the bottom, separated by the tail of the letter 'Q' from the top. Above the upper part of the outer ring is a small semi-rectangular label, the curved top of the seal acting as the bottom of the label. The frame and the lettering within it are golden, while the background is white. Written inside the label in gold is the alphanumeric in capitals 'FOUNDED 1867'. At the bottom of the outer ring is a similar label with 'INCORPORATED 1984', also in gold on a white background.
