Background knowledge

Between them is a blue coat of arms with three plows representing agriculture in New Jersey. Above them is a horse's head as an attachment for a helmet that is below. At the feet of the goddesses is a blue banner that contains the state motto: 'Liberty and Prosperity'. The year 1776 in the center of the banner represents the year New Jersey became a state.
