The actual Great Seal of Arizona that is used on official documents is in black and white. The design on the seal features a background mountain range with the sun rising behind the peaks, a storage reservoir (lake) and a dam, irrigated fields and orchards, grazing cattle, and a quartz mill with a miner holding a pick and shovel.

Above the drawing is the Arizona state motto; "Ditat Deus," (Latin for "God Enriches"). The words "Great Seal of the State of Arizona" and the year of admission to the United States (1912) is written around the seal.
