FBI SEALS
Each symbol and color in the FBI Seal has special significance.  The dominant blue field of the seal and the scales on the shield represent justice.  The endless circle of 13 stars denotes the unity of purpose as exemplified by the thirteen original states.  The laurel leaf has, since early civilization, symbolized academic honors, distinction and fame.  There are exactly 46 leaves in the two branches, since there were 46 states in the Union when the FBI was founded in 1908.  The significance of the red and white parallel stripes lies in their colors.  Red traditionally stands for courage, valor and strength, while white conveys cleanliness, light, truth and peace.  As in the American Flag, the red bars exceed the white by one.  The motto, “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity”, succinctly describes the motivating force behind the men and women of the FBI.  The peaked beveled edge which circumscribes the seal symbolizes the severe challenges confronting the FBI and the ruggedness of the organization.  The gold color in the seal symbolizes its overall value.
