The Village Council authorized a “Village Seal Contest” on June 25, 1996 and encouraged area residents and students to enter submissions of a proposed seal for the Council’s consideration. A Village Seal Committee, chaired by former Councilmember Leslie Bowe, reviewed the submissions and presented the Council with its top six choices on August 20, 1996. The submission of Pinecrest resident Carlos Piña was selected as the official seal on September 17, 1996 and was adopted on November 19, 1996 by Ordinance 96-11. The Piña seal has served as the official seal of the Village of Pinecrest since that date.
The use of the Village Seal without written authorization of the Village of Pinecrest shall be punishable as provided in Section 775.082 and 775.083 of Florida Statutes and Section 2-28 of the Pinecrest Code of Ordinances.
