Frequently Bought Together:

The Virginia state flag consists of a blue background with the State Seal of Virginia in its center. The seal features two figures - one clad in blue and holding a spear, standing over the other, who’s laying on the ground, defeated by the other, clad in royal purple. The defeated figure, representing tyranny, has lost his crown, a gold crown laying on the side. Along the edges of the seal is text reading “Virginia” and “Sic Semper Tyrannis”, Virginia’s state motto, which is Latin for “Thus Always to Tyrants”. On the left side of the flag is a durable canvas header with brass grommets for attachment to flagpoles.

The territory of Virginia is one of the oldest areas permanently settled by Europeans in the United States. In Virginia, European colonies date to the early 1600s; Virginia was one of the original 13 British American colonies. Many of the United States founding fathers were born in Virginia. It became the 10th state to join the Union in 1788 as the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The Virginia flag was adopted in 1912, designed by American Sculptor Charles Keck, featuring the Virginia state seal. The state seal has gone through many design changes since the founding of the Commonwealth of Virginia and wasn't finalized until 1950. 

These many changes have resulted in many Virginia flags flying about with an inaccurate state seal design. To clear up confusion, the Virginia legislature standardized the seal. The motto “Sic Semper Tyrannis”, or “Thus Always to Tyrants”, is featured on the seal as a callback to Virginia’s revolutionary roots. The Roman figure that is shown striking down a tyrannical figure next to a fallen crown is a symbol of peace, representing Virginia’s major role in striking down British rule's tyranny during the American Revolution.
