I understand the usage of Which and that it is a non-restrictive clause and it refers to the preceding noun.

However, if "which" is used with "of".... what noun does it refer to?

For example

with the rollicking musical legacy of their hometown, which is a fitting symbol

Does Which refer to musical legacy or hometown. Of usage confuses me.

‘which’ may or may not refer the immediately preceding noun. To decide, eliminate the prepositional phrases to get to the primary noun. ‘which’ basically refers to the primary noun. In GMAT, you should not receive such complex SCs. (Source: MGMAT)
