According to an official press release, the FC New York shield is representative of the flag of the borough of Queensmarker (part of New York Citymarker), although the club is located and will play in Hempstead, Nassau County, rather than Queens (its intended home). The blue background with a horizontal white stripe is symbolic of Queens' first Dutch governor Willem Kieft, who acquired the area from the Native Americans. The first settlers of Queens are represented by the two flowers - the tulip, emblematic of the Dutch, and the Tudor rose of the English. The Queen's crown signifies the name of the county and borough of Queens.
