Today is the 145th birthday for the State of Nebraska. this is an image of our State's flag which features the state seal. The seal’s design is as follows: On the eastern part, a steamboat is ascending the Missouri River. The mechanic arts are represented by a smith with hammer and anvil. Agriculture is represented by a settler’s cabin, sheaves of wheat and stalks of growing corn. In the background, a train is heading toward the Rocky Mountains, which are in view in the west. In the top of the circle is the state motto: “Equality Before the Law.” There was no Equality in Indianapolis this afternoon as the Nebraska girls beat the Northwestern team 88-56 in the first round of the Big 10 tournament. We led early 41-10 and never looked back.
