Adams County Seal
The Adams County Board of Supervisors wanted a logo design that would reflect the natural assets and history of the area. This design features Emerald Mound, a local National Historic Landmark (history), the Mississippi River (commerce) and the bluff upon which Natchez sits (geography). The rising sun represents hope for the future, and the three stars symbolize the three continents that have contributed to the population of the area (Africa, Europe, and America). The stars also refer to the brief time when this area was the state capitol.
