Seal in standard circular format. Outer ring gules with SEAL OF THE CITY OF DAPHNE, ALABAMA in capital letters argent at top and JUBILEE CITY same argent at bottom; the two words at bottom are separated by a stylized fish of the same. At
lower dexter and sinister are what appear to be two stylized laurel leaves ('daphne' is the ancient Greek word for laurel). The whole encompasses a square building brick red in colour, roofed and windowed argent and shuttered black, in front of
which is a flagstaff black from which is hoisted a United States flag rippling dexter, the same on a lawn vert containing an oak tree leaved and trunked proper with two indistinct figures underneath. Above all is a sky azure, and in the
foreground a small stream, also azure but in a deeper shade. A representation of this seal can be seen affixed to the wall of the City Council chamber over the heads of the council members, on this same page.

The city of Daphne has indicated it does have a flag, but is not able to provide an image of it.
