Official State Motto of Utah

The state motto of Utah is simply "Industry." All State Mottos

Utah's motto appears on the state's coat of arms (which is featured on the state seal and state flag). The beehive is also featured on Utah's coat of arms representing hard work and industry (Utah recognizes the beehive as the official state emblem, and designates the Beehive Cluster as the official state star cluster).
