The state flag of Idaho contains the only state seal in the country that was designed by a woman, Emma Edwards. At the turn of the 20th century, the country was embroiled in the struggle for full women's rights. Inspired by the struggle for equality and full voting rights, she purposefully made the woman and the man the same height within the seal in the center of the Idaho flag. While designing the seal she spoke with many prominent citizens within the state to determine the most important symbols of Idaho. Some of the symbols include the miner, the scales (to denote liberty and justice), the trees, the shield, the stamp mill, the cornucopia, and the elk’s head.
