Sealing The Deal

Sealing The Deal

Posted to Flickr on 04 August 2009.

Close-up of the U.S. seal on the 2008 Texas State Capitol ornament.

Texas was an independent Republic before becoming part of its larger neighbor, the United States, in 1845. The U.S. seal commemorates the thirteen original states with 13 stripes, 13 stars, 13 arrows, and 13 leaves on the olive branch.

The ornament reflects one of the most beautiful architectural designs of the Texas State Capitol: the terrazzo flooring of the Rotunda beneath the Capitol dome.
