The 45th State
A national flag shows that Utah supports the United States. With the young pioneers having a few material resources at their disposal, they had to reply on their own industry to survive. In a blue field, appears the state's seal, 'The Great Seal'. In the center of the seal is a beehive, the state emblem, with a Sego Lily, the state flower, growing on either side. The Sego Lily is a formation for peace. The state motto "Industry" means steady effort. The eagle stands for protection in peace and war. The date 1847 represents the year that Brigham Young led a group of people to the Salt Lake Valley to reestablish in Utah, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, know as The Mormons. The date 1896 represents the year that Utah gained admission to the Union of the United States.
