Nebraska State Seal

Nebraska State Seal

The Great Seal of the State of Nebraska, adopted in 1867, is a symbol steeped in historical significance and state pride. It features a vivid representation of Nebraska during its early statehood, with a blacksmith working at an anvil, a steamboat ascending the Missouri River, a settler's cabin, sheaves of wheat, growing corn, and a train heading towards the Rocky Mountains. The motto "EQUALITY BEFORE THE LAW" encircles the top of the seal, with the words "Great Seal of the State of Nebraska, March 1st, 1867," completing the design. Although the seal has faced occasional criticism for its archaic elements, including the presence of the Rocky Mountains, which are not in Nebraska, it remains a cherished emblem of the state's heritage and values.
