About the Nebraska State Flag
The state flag of Nebraska consists of the state seal on a field of national blue. The official state seal was created in 1866. State statute specifies "the eastern part of the circle [of the seal] to be represented by a steamboat ascending the Missouri River, the mechanic arts to be represented by a smith with a hammer and anvil, in the foreground, agriculture to be represented by a settlers cabin, sheaves of wheat, and stalks of growing corn, in the background a train of cars heading towards the Rocky Mountains, and on the extreme west, the Rocky Mountains to be plainly in view, around the top of the circle, to be in capital letters, the motto: "Equality Before the Law," and the circle to be surrounded with the words, "Great Seal of the State of Nebraska, March 1, 1867." The sum of twenty-five dollars was appropriated to create the new seal, and the bill was signed into law on June 15, 1867.
The Nebraska capital was moved from Omaha to Lincoln the next year. According to legend, Secretary of State Thomas Kennard carried the seal to its new home in his buggy, drawn by a team of horses across the prairie and the Platte River. The same seal is used to stamp official state documents today.
In 1925, Nebraska state representative J. Lloyd McMaster introduced a bill to adopt a state banner. The bill was passed and became statute. The law describes the banner as "a reproduction of the Great Seal of the State charged on the center in gold and silver on a field of national blue." The 1963 state legislature designated the state banner the official flag of Nebraska. The original state flag is currently hanging in the Secretary of State's office for the viewing pleasure of the public.
