Cape Cod A Ship and A Plowshare

When Falmouth adopted its town seal in 1902, the people were pleased to have a symbol so representative of their community. The seal shows Nobska Light, a ship in full sail, and a plowshare.

Nobska Light indicating protection for the seamen and ships off Falmouth’s shores.

The ship in full sail indicates the glory of the days of sail when ships were no strangers to Falmouth’s harbor.

The plowshare indicates the industry of her men ashore who tilled the soil. The famous Cape Cod cranberry should not be overlooked; the seal uses sprays of the little red berries entwined in the bordering lettering.
