Our West Virginia state flag allows you to show your admiration for the Mountain State with style. This single/reverse flag is designed for outdoor flying and comes in all customary sizes to suit your display needs.

Each of our West Virginia flags is American-made using high-quality, durable nylon. The nylon fabric’s lightness means the flag can fly even in gentle breezes, while its quick-drying nature helps prevent mildew growth. The design is digitally printed for UV and fade resistance, even under direct sunlight.

Our West Virginia flags come in a wide range of sizes, including the standard 3’ x 5’. Sizes up to 6’ x 10’ come with a sturdy canvas header and brass grommets, while sizes 8’ x 12’ and larger come with a rope and galvanized thimbles for added strength for heavier flags. For assistance in selecting the right size for your outdoor flagpole, please refer to our table of recommended flagpole height and flag size pairings.

West Virginia State Flag History

The first official West Virginia state flag was adopted in 1905 when the state needed a banner to represent itself during the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. This flag had a white background and blue border, and a drawing of rhododendron maximum flowers, or “big laurel,” in the center. On the reverse side of the flag was the state seal.

In 1907, the flag was updated to have the state seal on the front and the big laurel flowers on the reverse side.

The current flag was adopted in 1929, when it was decided that both sides should be combined, with the state seal surrounded by big laurel branches. The reverse side was changed to be a mirrored version of the front.
