About the Virginia State Flag
The Virginia state flag consists of a blue field upon which is centered the state's very distinctive seal. The seal is a circular field of white with an inner floral ring, presumably composed of dogwood blossoms, the state flower.
Within the floral wreath the Roman goddess Virtus stands with left foot planted upon the chest of a defeated opponent. The barefoot Virtus is clothed in an Amazonian style blue garment; she holds a spear in her right hand and a sword in her left. The tyrannical foe's crown lies on the ground near his head. The scene illustrates the Virginia state motto Sic Semper Tyrannis, "Thus Always to Tyrants," which is inscribed below in black lettering. The name Virginia appears across the top.
The seal was approved at Virginia's 1776 Constitutional Convention. The timing explains the strong symbolism. The principal designer is thought to be George Wythe, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. A committee composed of Wythe, George Mason, Robert Carter Nicholas, and Richard Henry Lee collaborate on the design. The Roman Goddess is intended to represent the virtues of heroism, righteousness, freedom and valor.
The Virginia state flag was used in the 1800's, but was not officially adopted until 1930. The state was one of the last to adopt a state flag.
