In the picture of the state seal are thirty-four stars representing the order of statehood. Above the stars is the motto "To the Stars through Difficulties". On the seal, a sunrise overshadows a farmer plowing a field near his log cabin, a steamboat sailing the Kansas River, a wagon train heading west and Native Americans hunting bison.
