Florida Seal


This seal is in the lobby of the new capitol. The five smaller seals surrounding it represent the nations whose flag has flown over Florida: France, Spain, Great Britain, Confederate States of America, and the United States of America. I took this picture from the second floor balcony. The reflection of lights you see is a large chandelier hanging over the seal.

I guess I hadn't realized that many claims on Florida. The seal is beautiful. We have one on the floor of the Capitol rotunda as well, I must get a photo.
