The Indiana State Seal depicts a pioneer scene - a woodsman felling a tree, a bison fleeming from the sound of the axe, and the sun gleaming over a distant hill. This seal has undergone many changes over the years.
Variations of the seal were used throughout the Territorial period. The earliest preserved specimen of its use is on the petition of the Vincennes convention of 1802. It was not until 1963 that an official version of the state seal was adopted.
