SHIELD. A new Star rising, in a field of azure, on the shield, over the Snowy Mountains of California to join the Constellation of the United States, (represented above,) and its rays reflected in the Pacific Ocean, delineated on the lower part of the same shield; and in which a Whale-emblematic of the whaling interests—is sporting, while a Ship enters between two headlands, on one of which the gigantic Pine of California is represented.
SUPPORTERS. A Wild Horse on the right; and a Wild Bull on the left of the shield-emblematic of the peculiar interests and animals of California. The lower part is adorned with Grapes and Wheat Ears-emblematic of the productions of the country; and the Motto of these words from Horace : Postera Crescam Laude-" I shall flourish in the future."
CREST. A rampant Grizzly Bear, bearing the American Flag, furled, to denote Peace with a Bowie Knife, and the Motto: Tuebor-"I will defend."
The above design for the
of California is submitted by J. W. R.
