Background knowledge

New York's flag consists of a dark blue background, the center of which shows the seal of the state. In the center of the seal is a coat of arms, which shows the landscape of the Hudson River. Two ships can be seen on the Hudson River, representing domestic and foreign trade. Directly above is a globe on which sits the eagle, the heraldic animal of the United States. Holding the shield are the two goddesses, Libertas (wearing a Phrygian cap on her staff, with a crown at her foot symbolizing freedom) and Justitia (holding a pair of scales and a sword). At their feet is a white banner on which is written the state motto 'Excelsior' (Latin for 'always upward').
New York received its name in honor of Duke York and Albany, the brother of King Charles II of England.
