Here is a description of the flag and seal:
The flag would be reddish brown, symbolic of the original quarried stone in Simsbury, and show a copperish gold round seal in the center, with the significant elements of the seal sewn in black, and the flag edged with a copperish gold fringe. The seal embraces the Higley Copper, first copper coin to be minted in America; the Old Meeting House, a replica of which stands in the Simsbury Historical Center; the Tree, symbol of our natural resources; and the family group which is the base of our whole society. The leaves on the outer circumference of the seal represent the hop vine, from which many familiar Simsbury names are derived, and the inner circle represents a fuse, symbolic of America's first such industry which was founded in Simsbury.
