The state flag of Nebraska consists of the state seal on a field of national blue. The official state seal was created in 1866. The seal displays a steamboat ascending the Missouri River, the mechanic arts are represented by a smith with a hammer and anvil, agriculture is represented by a settlers cabin, sheaves of wheat, and stalks of growing corn. In the background is a train of cars heading towards the Rocky Mountains. Around the top of the circle is the state: “Equality Before the Law.”
