Idaho State Seal

Idaho State Seal

The state of Idaho's seal, adopted in 1863 and redesigned by Emma Edwards Green, is rich in symbolism and represents the state's history and resources. On a blue field, the state flag features this seal, along with the words "State of Idaho" in gold letters on a red and gold band below it. The seal itself depicts a miner and a woman symbolizing equality, liberty, and justice, with elements representing Idaho's natural resources like mines, forests, farmland, and wildlife. The Latin motto "Esto perpetua" (Let it be perpetual) surrounds the seal, signifying the enduring nature of the state. The shield within the seal showcases a pine tree, representing timber, a husbandman plowing, symbolizing agriculture, and other elements representing horticulture and wildlife. Idaho's unique flag design reflects its historical and natural heritage.
