Adopted in 1942, the Kentucky state seal features the state motto "United We Stand, Divided We Fall."
Placed on a navy blue field is the seal and words "Commonwealth of Kentucky".
The two people on the seal, a pioneer and a statesman, represent all the people. They are acting out the meaning of Kentucky's motto "United We Stand Divided We Fall".
Sprays of goldenrod extend in a half circle around the picture.
