• A new effort to update the official Town Seal and develop a Town Logo is beginning to gain momentum. Here’s why it’s happening.
For many, it seems like it has always been a part of the town, and it certainly seems to be everywhere: the Town Seal.

But…it’s a picture. What about it warrants such an undertaking? Municipal Reporter Yuxiao Yuan looks at the history of Needham’s current seal, and talks about the problems that town leaders are hoping to solve with a little bit of help and a lot of work.
