|The sun rises over Sand
Mountain, symbolizing a new day and a new era for this city which is so
rich in the history of Sand Mountain and the Northeast Alabama Region.
Silhouetted in this "new
dawn" are the myriad elements which characterize Boaz, beginning in the
foreground with its founding in 1897 out of a pioneer spirit in an agrarian
society and progressively moving-through foresight and diligent labor-toward
the modern-day City of Boaz, The silhouette of the "New Boaz" encompasses
the many significant facets of this progressive community-including business,
industry, education, religion, patriotism and quality of life-all a part
of the rich traditions of the city.
The heads of grain symbolize
the fruits of these elements, in terms of growth and prosperity for the
community and for its citizens and their families. And surrounding
it all is a city government dedicated to tradition, justice and progress.
The banner which is unfurled
over this scene heralds the Latin phraseology best summarizing the story
