Our liberties we prize
and our rights we will maintain

The state motto of Iowa was the work of a three-man Senate committee and was incorporated into the design of the Iowa state seal at their suggestion. The motto (Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain) also appears on the Iowa state flag.
