The description of the seal of the state of Utah
The bald eagle, the national bird of the United States, symbolizes protection during war and peace. Arrows in the eagle’s claws represent bravery in a war. Lily, the flower of Utah, means peace. The motto of the state, “Industry” and the hive symbolize progress and hard work. The crossed Union flags show the loyalty of the state of Utah to the United States. The name of the state is located under the hive. The date 1847 represents the year when Brigham Young led the first Mormons into the territory of Utah. 1896 means the year Utah entered the United States as a state. A Golden circle around the seal represents an inviolable right. The shield under the eagle symbolizes protection.
The print project of the flag was adopted in 1850 by the Utah territory and changed by artist Harry Edwards when Utah became a state in 1896. Prior to Utah’s entry into the United States, Utah territory used a flag reminiscent of modern times.
According to most descriptions, the Deseret flag was similar to the Utah flag, but since the flag was not legalized, other secular and religious options were also used.
