Wyoming, Black (Ninety Percent) State

A bison on a blue field bordered in white and red. The state seal branded on the bison. The woman represents the state motto, “Equal Rights,” and the two men represent cattle ranchers and miners. The words “Livestock,” “Mines,” “Grains,” and “Oil” represent Wyoming’s wealth. The eagle and shield show support for the United States. The dates 1869 and 1890 tell when Wyoming organized as a territory of the United States and when it became a state.
