The year 1879, signifying the date of the incorporation of the Village of La Grange, is inscribed in black letters on a white tree which symbolizes the importance of trees in our Village. This tree is placed in the center against an all-over pattern of free and varied circles representing the people of La Grange. A rope-like band surrounds the tree and circles. The all-over pattern of circles suggests our respect and responsibility shown for people, institutes, government, businesses, organizations, and activities of the citizens of La Grange. An outer circle of "S's" symbolize the services and cooperation for and by the citizens for the positive goals of our Village, its community and our country.
