The Flag

A flag, seal, and logo were adopted with Ordinance #6/21 in March 2021.

B. The municipal seal is used for purposes of certifying official records and instruments of the Town of West New York.
a. The seal is described as constituting the following elements; specifically,

i. It is in the shape of a circle.

ii. On the bottom right of the center circle, there remains a visual representation of the Town of West New York pre-waterfront development.

1. The same, depicts various elements of the historical mixed-use environment which embodies the Town of West New York – that of seamless residential, commercial, and industrial zones coming together.

2. There is an industrial gear holding up a piece of plywood, symbolizing growth and development – which highlights the rapid population growth the Town has seen since the 1940s and 1950s.

iii. On the northern half of the inner circle, we see a visual representation of the City of New York, with modular figures embodying the skyscrapers (inclusive of the Empire State Building) visually present across the river from the Town of West New York.

iv. Above the northern half of the inner circle there are thirteen (13) five pointed stars, highlighting the thirteen American colonies which embodied and established safeguards for our shared American values and identity as one of freedom, progress, and prosperity.

v. There is an outer ring, which at the top contains the words “WEST NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY” and at the bottom “PROGRESS ‘1898’ PROSPERITY”

D. The Town flag means the official flag, or any prior official flag, of the Town of West New York, including any cut, facsimile, reproduction, incorporation, likeness, or derivation thereof, which is a rectangle having a height-to width ration of 3:5, that contains a blue border, and has two horizontal color stripes of equal width and height in white and navy blue, with the Town seal centered vertically and/or horizontally in the middle of the rectangle and overlapping the two horizontal stripes.
