Welcome to
New York was named in honor of the Duke of York when the English took possession of New Amsterdam in 1664. His badge, the sun, still appears on the state coat of arms. An American Bald Eagle perches on top a globe believed to be the new world. The goddess Liberty is on the left holding a staff with a Liberty Cap on top. At her feet is a royal crown representing freedom from England. On the right is the goddess Justice, wearing a blindfold with a sword in her right hand and scales in her left hand. This signifies equal treatment for everyone under the law. In the center are ships sailing on the Hudson River.
