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.
