The MTP Corporate Seal
The MTP uses the Territorial Seal of Minnesota as its Corporate Seal. Adopted in 1849, the Territorial Seal was based on a design by Seth Eastman and depicts an Indian riding towards the sun with the Falls of St. Anthony behind him, as a Pioneer plows a field with his axe and gun nearby.
