Municipal authority to adopt a seal — 30-A M.R.S.A. § 2002.
The seal of the City, which was adopted on June 4, 1891, by vote of the City government, is described as follows:
In the center of the seal is a facsimile of the vessel in which Colonel Thomas Westbrook, for whom the City was named, came to Falmouth, bearing the king's commission to select masts for the Royal Navy. Surmounting this is the crest of the Westbrook Family, a mailed knee and foot. Around the seal are the words "City of Westbrook," and the date 1814, date of incorporation of the town, and 1891, date of incorporation of the City.
