Seal of Alaska
The official state seal of Alaska was originally designed in 1910 when Alaska was still a territory and not a state. The symbols on the state seal represent:
Rays above the mountains: the Northern Lights (aurora borealis).
Train: Alaska's rail transportation
Ships: marine transportation
Trees: Alaska's wealth of forests
Farmer, horse, three shocks of wheat: Alaskan agriculture.
Fish and seals on outer circle: importance of seafood and wildlife to Alaska's economy.
