Sixty years ago, the area encompassing Middleburg Heights, Ohio, was largely farmland. The city’s police department patch, with its red barn and onions in the middle, represents this agrarian past. The modern day office building to the right reflects the area’s growth into a progressive, suburban Cleveland community. The sun and sunbeams in the background are taken from The Great Seal of the State of Ohio, while the American flag at the base represents the city’s deep rooted nationalism.
