Landscape with a rising sun (the east)River and steamboat (commerce)

Settler's cabin and a man plowing a field (agriculture) [foreground]

Wagon train heading west (American expansion)

Indians hunting American Bison (the buffalo are fleeing from the Indians)

Cluster of 34 stars (top of the seal)

State motto "Ad Astra per Aspera" - Latin : "To the Stars through Difficulties" (above the stars)
