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."
