The San Carlos Apache place their tribal seal on a white background to create a tribal flag. The seal celebrates the natural beauty of the lands of the San Carlos Apache and the major economic resources of its residents. The seal is circular, surrounded by a serrated black edge and a red ring. An inner white ring with an orange border shows “APACHE TRIBE” and “SAN CARLOS RESERVATION”, separated by five-pointed stars, all in black. Central to the seal is a geographic tableau of the reservation showing the mountains, a lake, and two plants of the reservation-the piñón pine and the saguaro cactus-all in natural colors. Below this scene is a Hereford steer's head, signifying the importance of cattle ranching to the Apache. Next to the head are mining symbols, a pick and shovel on one side, and a piece of peridotite ore on the other.
