The city seal and the flag it appeared on were revised after the city commission was told in 2016 that the seal showed the incorrect "Castle and Lion" flag of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella rather than the correct Cross of Burgundy flag used by the Spanish military unit that had occupied Amelia Island.

The Fernandina Beach Police Department flag (from 2021 and as shown here) and seal still use the incorrect Castle and Lion flag.
