Happy Birthday to the Great Seal
The front of the seal depicts a bald eagle clutching an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. On its breast appears a shield marked with 13 vertical red and white stripes topped by a bar of blue.
The eagle's beak clutches a banner inscribed, E pluribus unum, a Latin phrase meaning "Out of Many One."
Above the eagle's head, golden rays burst forth, encircling 13 stars.
