The website at www.ci.sahuarita.az.us shows a triangular shield with the apex pointing downwards. The outer portion is brown fimbriated black, with two bosses with black spirals and with swallowtails also fimbriated black. The entire effect is to create the appearance of leather. The top of the triangle rises to a peak in the middle. On the left side of this peak the words 'TOWN OF' are written in black capitals, while on the right the word 'SAHUARITA' is similarly written. At the apex of the triangle the alphanumeric 'INCORPORATED [ILLEGIBLE]' is written in miniscule black capitals. The center of the triangle depicts the rising sun as in the Arizona state flag, with rays of red and gold. The golden disk of the sun is located to the upper left; it rises from a slate colored mountain range which in turn looms over a blue desert floor. In the left foreground stands a green saguaro cactus, and at its foot are six desert flowers, white with green leaves and centers.
