Lady Justice (Justitia) is blindfolded and has a sword in one hand. Her other hand, holding a set of scales, has been lost. The sword symbolises the power of Justice, while the scales and blindfold show that Justice is impartial.

Justice is one of the four cardinal virtues, along with Prudence, Fortitude and Temperance.
