Butler County Commissioners Monday approved a new county seal.

The seal features the Butler County Courthouse inside a drawing of Butler County. It also features the date the county was established.

Butler County Commission Chairman Frank Hickman said that while there were a number of symbols that could have been used in the seal, the most logical was the county’s courthouse.
