The website at www.marana.com shows a very modern seal befitting a town incorporated only recently. In an outer ring fimbriated with a thick black line at the edge of the outer circle and a thinner one at the edge of the inner one are the words 'TOWN OF' in black capitals, while at the bottom the word 'ARIZONA' is written in the same manner. The sides of the outer ring contain the numerals '19' to the right and '77' to the left respectively. The centre of the seal is divided by a wide fess in old gold and fimbriated by thick lines at the top and bottom, and with the word 'MARANA' in large black capitals written across its length. This fess stretches the entire length of the seal. Above the fess is a slate blue sky over a jagged mountain range in deep blue fimbriated white. In the foreground are two structures in brown also fimbriated and windowed white. Below the fess at the right is a stylised lake in blue with equally stylised waves in white. This image takes up 2/3 of the bottom part of the seal, and is separated on the right by a white line from another stylised representation, this one in green divided by white lines and suggesting a plowed field.
