The great coat of arms of the United States of America on a waving white flag
The United States coat of arms, also known as the Great Seal, prominently features the nation's symbol, the bald eagle. The eagle holds a shield on its chest, bearing thirteen red and white stripes, representing the original thirteen states, and a blue band, signifying the President and Congress. Thirteen stars above the eagle's head and thirteen arrows clutched in its talons further reference the original thirteen states. The eagle's grasp of an olive branch and arrows symbolizes the country's power in both peace and war. Additionally, the eagle carries a parchment in its beak with the Latin motto "E Pluribus Unum," translating to "one from many" or "one from many parts," representing the unification of the thirteen states into a single nation. This intricate design encapsulates the United States' history and values within a single emblem.
