State Seal of New Hampshire
New Hampshire’s usage of a state seal dates back to 200 years. It was first created and adopted in 1775 and revised in 1784. The confusion regarding the actual features led to the ”State Seal Law” in 1931 which standardized the seal to its present form, placing the frigate ”Raleigh” (one of the first thirteen US Warships) at the center of the seal. The granite boulder represents the terrain of New Hampshire as well as the sturdiness of its people.
