The town conducted a contest for the purpose of requesting public assistance in the design of the seal. The theme for the official seal needed to include part of the Town's heritage, to reflect some or any of the following: foothill
terrain, transcontinental railroad that runs through Loomis, gateway to the Sierras, fruit orchards, packing/shipping fruit sheds, livestock ranching, grapevine yards, gold mining, rural lifestyle, several streams that run through Loomis and fishing, etc. Cory Kutsenkow was the winner for depicting the spirit and heritage of Loomis in her design of the official seal. It was adopted May 28, 1985, Ordinance 29.
We incorporated in December 17, 1984. We do not have our own flag yet.

At http://www.loomis.ca.gov is a very small seal. It is in green and white outline form on a green background. The format is circular with a very narrow outer ring, but I am unable either to read
the words and date written at the top and bottom of this outer ring, nor to make out clearly any of the details within the central image.

Posted temporarily at home.t-online.de/home/520068460732-0001/63292.jpg (no longer accessible) is an image from which we can determine that the words in the ring say TOWN OF LOOMIS at the top, and CALIFORNIA at the bottom. They are separated by a some sort of motifs, but I can't see them well enough to describe. The central image has a tree in the foreground, in front of a landscape- probably an agricultural landscape, but it is not clear enough for me to be sure- with some hills at the horizon. All in natural colors.
