New York State Flag

The New York state flag shows the state coat of arms on a blue field. The goddesses Liberty on the left, and Justice on the right support a shield in which the sun rises over boats sailing the Hudson River. Beneath the coat of arms is a shield containing the state motto "Excelsior," ("Ever higher"). An eagle atop a globe is above the arms. At Liberty's feet lies a discarded crown representing freedom from England.
