In 1868 the new constitution of Florida passed a resolution for the legislature to adopt a seal to symbolize the state. According to the resolution, the size of state seal has to be equivalent to the size of an American silver dollar.
The Florida state seal must also contain images of a steamboat, cocoa tree, an Indian women scattering flowers and illuminated sunrays.
The word ‘Great Seal of the State of Florida: In God We Trust’ encircles the seal. Many changes have however, taken place in the state seal of Florida after this.
Apart from the state seal, there are various other symbols which represent the state of Florida. Among the various Florida state symbols, the oldest state symbols are the state flower, state song and state bird.
