The official seal of the State of Alaska is an elaborate representation of the state’s natural resources and economic assets. The seal is 2 1/8 inches in diameter, and consists of two concentric circles surrounding intricate detailed images. The outer circle contains the words “The Seal of the State of Alaska” and two images, a seal and a fish, representing Alaska’s abundant marine wildlife.
The inner circle shows the mix of Alaska’s natural and industrial wealth. The Northern Lights radiate over the top of majestic mountains. Sailing ships navigate the waters. Industry and rail transportation, timber production, and agriculture are all shown on the seal. Abundant natural resources, and bustling economic activity are the themes that burst to life on Alaska’s splendid seal.
