Iowa State Seal

Creating the Great Seal of Iowa was one of the initial acts of Iowa's first Legislature in 1847.

The state seal is two-inches in diameter and pictures a citizen soldier standing in a wheat field, surrounded by farming and industrial tools. The Mississippi River is in the background, and an eagle flies above, holding in its beak a scroll bearing the state motto (Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain). The eagle with streamers is also featured on Iowa's state flag.
