with the words "One nation made of many States."
The fan shaped design above the eagle represents
the birth of a new nation,
the United States.
The name "North Dakota" appears on a red scroll
below the eagle.

Great Seal.

A tree in an open field,
the trunk of which is
surrounded by three bundles of wheat
On the right are a plow, an anvil and a sledge;
On the left, a bow crossed with three arrows
and an Indian on horseback
pursuing a buffalo toward the setting sun.
