State Seal of Vermont
The seal of Vermont was designed by Ira Allen, one of the founders of Vermont. The seal was approved in 1779 by the General Assembly.
The present-day seal was adopted in 1937 and is an exact replica of the original. The seal features a very tall pine tree rising amidst numerous green trees. The pine tree has 14 branches, signifying Vermont’s admission to the Union as the 14th State. The cow and the sheafs symbolize agriculture. The waves at the top and bottom represent the sky and water respectively.
