Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. It borders the state of Montana to the east and northeast, Wyoming to the east, Nevada and Utah to the south, and Washington and Oregon to the west. The U.S. state of Idaho has 16 official Symbol and emblems. Those are designated by the Idaho Legislature. These symbols reflect the history and culture of the state. Idaho’s first official symbol was its seal, adopted in 1863 when the Idaho Territory became an organized incorporated territory of the United States. The state’s second symbol was its motto, which was chosen shortly after Idaho was admitted to the Union in 1890. Five additional symbols were added between 1900 and 1950, including three in 1931 alone. Idaho’s most recent symbol is the peregrine falcon, adopted as the state raptor in 2004. Part of the iconic Yellowstone National Park is in Idaho and it is just the beginning of many things to do in this beautiful state. For outdoor enthusiasts, there is fantastic skiing on Schweitzer Mountain, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and fishing on the Big Wood River.
