Transcript of The Reverse Seal of Texas

The Reverse Seal of Texas
The Creation of the Seal
The official design of the Reverse Seal is behind the Great Seal of Texas. The Reverse Seal was adopted by the 57th Legislature in 1961, but there were discrepancies between the written description and the artistic rendering that was adopted at the same time. To resolve problems they agreed to design it as a shield.
The Pictures on the Shield
On the shield's lower left is a depiction of the cannon of The Battle of Gonzales. On the shield's lower right is a depiction of the Vince's Bridge. On the upper half of the shield is a depiction of the Alamo. The shield is circled by live oak branches and olive branches. The unfurled flags of the Kingdom of France, the Kingdom of Spain, the United Mexican States, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America, and the USA. Above the shield, is the motto, "REMEMBER THE ALAMO!" Under the shield are the words,"TEXAS ONE AND INDIVISIBLE." Centered in the middle of the flags, is a 5 pointed star.
