VIRGINIA STATE FLAG HISTORY & MEANING
The territory of Virginia is one of the oldest areas permanently settled by Europeans in the United States. European colonies in Virginia date to the early 1600s, and Virginia was one of the original 13 British American colonies. Many of the founding fathers of the United States were born in Virginia, and it became the 10th state to join the Union in 1788 as the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Virginia’s flag was designed by American Sculptor Charles Keck and adopted in 1912, featuring the Virginia state seal. The state seal proudly displayed on it has gone through many design changes since the founding of the Commonwealth of Virginia and actually didn’t reach its finalized status until 1950.
With many different inaccurate designs of the state seal flying about, Virginia’s legislature standardized it to clear up any confusion. It features the Latin phrase “Sic Semper Tyrannis”, or “Thus Always to Tyrants”, Virginia’s official state motto, a callback to Virginia’s revolutionary roots.
The figures in the seal represent a Roman figure signifying peace having just struck down a tyrannical figure. This is meant to represent Virginia’s major role in striking down the tyranny of British rule during the American Revolution.
