Description

Arline Kiselewski, the 1976 Woman's Club president, presented this needlepoint, handcrafted crest to the city as part of the country's bicentennial. It is currently located in the city council chambers. Every member of the club participated in needle-pointing a portion of the crest. Symbolism of the city crest include the Atlantic Ocean and palm tree-lined beaches; the plaid representing John D. MacArthur's ancestral tartan; the banyan tree marking the first entrance of the city at MacArthur Boulevard; and the family, illustrating the desire to make this city a wonderful place to raise a family. The five stars stand for the five council members who are elected to govern the city.
