Alaska State Seal

Alaska State Seal

The Seal of the State of Alaska has a rich history, initially adopted during the time when it was known as the District of Alaska before statehood. The original design featured elements like glaciers, northern lights, igloos, and an Inuit person ice fishing. In 1910, this seal was updated to reflect the state's industrial and natural resources more accurately. The current seal includes rays above mountains symbolizing the northern lights, a smelter for mining, a train representing railroads, ships denoting sea transportation, trees representing timber, and a farmer, horse, and wheat shocks signifying agriculture. Additionally, the fish and seals on the seal highlight the significance of fishing and seal rookeries to Alaska's economy.
