Maryland State Seal Plaque: The Great Seal of Maryland is used by the Governor and the Secretary of State to authenticate Acts of the General Assembly and for other official purposes. The Secretary of State is the designated custodian of the Great Seal, and provides guidance on its use. The great seal of Maryland was adopted in 1876 by the General Assembly. The seal actually consists of an obverse and a reverse side, although it is the reverse side that is usually seen. During its history, Maryland has used several seals, including a new design during the time of the American Revolution, when Maryland's seal was more in line with the seals of the other states. The design of the present seal goes back to the days of the original settlements in Maryland, and is based upon a seal that was sent from England at that time. On the obverse side is a mounted knight (Lord Baltimore). The reverse shows a farmer, a fisherman, a shield, and a coat of arms.
