A silver miner and his team moving a carload of ore from a mountain on the left represent mineral resources. A quartz mill stands at the base of another mountain on the right.
Symbols for transportation and communication are telegraph poles and a train steaming across the background. In the foreground are symbols for agriculture - a sheaf of wheat, a sickle, and a plow.
A shining sun rising over snow-capped peaks represents Nevada’s natural beauty. The inner circle of the seal displays the motto "All for Our Country" and 36 stars (Nevada is the 36th state to join the Union). The perimeter of the seal states "The Great Seal of the State of Nevada".
On a cobalt blue background in the upper left quarter is a five-pointed silver star between two sprays of sagebrush crossed to form a half wreath across the top of the wreath is a golden scroll with the words, in black letters, "Battle Born."
The name "Nevada" is beneath the star in gold letters. The present Nevada State Flag design was adopted March 26, 1929, and revised in 1991.
