State Emblems Redesign Commission

Seal Submission Finalist


Seal Submission number: S2

Designer Statement

My proposed State Seal represents the North Star State as a guiding light for the Union and a gathering place for many cultures. It recalls the state motto, and reflects the North Star pattern on the Capitol Rotunda floor, by architect Cass Gilbert – with distinct versions based on the brass inset (embossed/medallion) & marble inlay (whether colorized according to the North Star Flag, or in the tonal colors of the rotunda floor).
