Fight launched over state seal

In /


Ohio’s official seal is emblazoned with a sun rising behind Mount Logan along the Scioto River, a harvested wheat field with a sheaf of wheat and a bundle of arrows.

Ohio Rep. Rick Perales says there is nothing wrong with the seal, it just doesn’t have much that is unique to Ohio.

Perales, R-Beavercreek, wants to change that. He has launched legislation to add the Wright Flyer to the official seal to symbolize the state’s foray into flight by the Wright brother’s famous invention.

“Everything on there has a reason and meaning, and I respect that,” Perales said of the existing seal. “I just want to put something else on there that … would say, hey, that’s the (Wright Flyer).”
