    "That the Seal of the Territory of Wyoming shall be of the following design, namely: A Norman shield, on the upper half of which is emblazoned a mountain scene, with a railroad train, the sun appearing above the horizon, the figures "1868" below the middle point of the top of the shield. On the first quarter below, on a white background, a plow, a pick, a shovel and a shepherd's crook; on the next quarter, namely: the lower point of the shield, on a red ground, an arm up-holding a drawn sword; the shield to be surmounted by the inscription, "Cedant Arma Toga," ["Let arms yield to the grown, or Let military authority give way to civil power."] and the entire design surrounded by the words, "Territory of Wyoming, great seal."

    On March 10, 1882, the Legislative Assembly amended the 1869 act correcting the error in the Latin quotation from Cedant Arma Toga to Cedant Arma Togae, also the year 1868 was changed to 1869 to reflect the year organization of the territorial government, rather than the year the territory was created. These were the only changes by law, but when struck, the Norman shield was embellished. This seal was used until the official state seal was adopted in 1893.
