The District II Official Seal was designed by Jimmie Nell Courtney in 1987.  The Official Seal is made up of two closely spaced circles with the wording placed inside.

District II is centered and curved across the top and Texas Garden Clubs, Inc. is centered and curved across the bottom.  A five-pointed star, representing the Lone Star State, fills the inner circle.  Superimposed over and to the right of the center of the star is a mockingbird, which is the State bird, that faces left.  Superimposed over the tail of bird is a pecan leaf, the State tree.  To the left of the center is a cluster of three bluebonnets with foliage, the State flower.  Below the bluebonnets are a cluster of three red roses, in three stages of development with foliage and stems, the official flower of the Texas Garden Clubs, Inc.
