State Seal of Utah
Officially and legally adopted in 1896, the Great Seal of the State of Utah features the bald eagle perched at the top of a shield with his wings spread wide, representing peace and protection.
The shield features a beehive in its center symbolizing industry and hard work. Utah is also nicknamed as ‘‘The Beehive State” and the Beehive is also the state emblem of Utah. Utah’s state flower Sego Lilies are also featured and are considered a symbol of peace. The year 1896 mentioned at the bottom is the year Utah became a US State.
