Texas State Seal

State Seal of Texas

Texas state seal

The seal of Texas has two sides and its design is largely based on the republic seal dating back to 1836 when Texas was still a republic. The present-day seal was adopted in 1992 from the artwork of Juan Vega.

Its obverse side features a pentagram, more famously known as the ”Lone Star.” It is encircled by oak and olive branches. ”The State of Texas” is written on top of the seal. The reverse side is more detailed with the words ”Remember the Alamo” on top, a shield with a picture of the Alamo in the Center, a picture of ”the Gonzales Cannon” and ”Vince’s Bridge” at the bottom. The shield is surrounded by the flags of the Six Nations that ruled either a part or the entire territory of Texas.
