Navajo Nation Patch
Embroidered patch featuring the great seal of the Navajo Nation. Adopted January 18, 1952, the Great Seal of the Navajo Nation is surrounded by 50 projectile points to symbolize the Nation’s protection within the 50 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 yellow sun shines from the East
on the four sacred mountains: Mount Blanca, Sacred Mountain of the East; Mount Taylor, Sacred Mountain of the South; San Fransisco Peaks, Sacred Mountain of the West and Mount Hesperus, Sacred Mountain of the North.
Two cornstalks with pollen symbolize the sustainer of Navajo life. A horse, cow and sheep, located in the center, symbolize the Navajo livestock.
