The Nebraska state flag consists of the Great Seal of Nebraska centered on a field of national blue. The official design of the Seal is as follows: On the eastern part, a steamboat is ascending the Missouri River. The mechanic arts are represented by a smith with hammer and anvil. Agriculture is represented by a settler's cabin, sheaves of wheat and stalks of growing corn. In the background, a train is heading toward the Rocky Mountains, which are in view in the west. In the top of the circle is the state motto: "Equality Before the Law." The circle is surrounded with the words, "Great Seal of the State of Nebraska, March 1st, 1867" The Nebraska flag was designated by legislative action in 1925.
Nebraska flags for outdoor use are constructed of a durable nylon fabric especially developed for flag use. Nylon's tight weave provides maximum beauty and flyability as well as brilliant, fast colors. Its weave helps shed pollution, dirt and grime that the looser weave alternatives absorb. Nylon is water repellent and mildew resistant.
