The Great Seal of the Navajo Nation was designed by Mr. John Claw, Jr., of Many Farms, Arizona,
and was officially adopted by the Navajo Tribal Council on January 18, 1952, by resolution CJ-9-52.

The Great Seal had forty eight projectile points or arrowheads symbolizing the Navajo Nations
protection within the forty eight states (as of 1952). Since then, two points have been added to
represent the entire fifty states of the United States. The opening at the top of the three concentric
lines is considered the East. The lines represent the rainbow and sovereignty of the Navajo Nation.
The rainbow never closes on the Nation's sovereignty. The outside line is red, the middle line is yellow
and the inside line, blue. The yellow sun shines from the east on the four sacred mountains,
Sisnaajinii, Tsoodzil, Dook'o'oslííd, and Dibé Ntsaa. Yoolgaii, Dootl'izhii, Diichili, and Baashzhinii are
the sacred mountain ceremonial stones.

Two cornstalks with pollen symbolizes the sustainer of Navajo life. A horse, cow, and sheep, located in
the center, symbolizes the Navajo livestock.
