Emblazoned on a dark blue field is the
state coat of arms. The goddess Liberty holds a
pole with a Liberty Cap on top. Liberty stands for
freedom. At her feet is a discarded crown,
representing freedom from England at the end of
the revolutionary war. On the right is the
goddess, Justice. She wears a blindfold & carries
the scales of justice. Meaning that everyone
receives equal treatment under the law.
The state motto "Excelsior" on a white ribbon

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center .
It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that
include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by
helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite , LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds
on Sept. 9, 2003, "those big rough steelworkers treated it with
total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there.
"It was a spiritual moment for everybody there."

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on
my neck stood up." "It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said.
"They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to
be back."

The ship's motto? "Never Forget"
