How can I find the state symbols for a state? Where can I find pictures of state symbols? Where can I find the words to a state song?

  • See the table of State Symbols in our almanac for a listing of all the official symbols for each state. You can also find State Mottoes, State Nicknames, and the Origins of State Names.
  • You will also find the symbols, mottoes, nicknames, name origins, and state songs listed in the almanac entry for any state. Pick a state from our U.S. States page and see the blue box on the left.
