Virginia - Flag Facts
Virginia was granted statehood in 1788 and was one of the original thirteen colonies. In 1861, after they seceded from the Union, Virginia adopted the flag that is still being used today. The state flag is on a field of deep blue with a white circle in the center displaying the state coat of arms. The coat of arms is described as:
- Virtus (“the genius of the commonwealth”), is dressed as an Amazon
- She holds a spear in one hand and a sword in the other
- In her right hand, a spear is pointed downward into the earth
- In her left hand she holds a sheathed sword which points upward
- Her head is raised and looking outward
- She stands over Tyranny, represented by a king, beneath her foot with his hands holding a broken chain and a whip, and his crown is lying on the ground
- At the top of the circle is the state name, Virginia
- Below the defeated king is the state motto, “Sic Semper Tyrannis” (thus always to tyrants)
- The border around the seal includes a wreath of the ivy plant, Virginia creeper
Since 1861, minor changes have been made to the statute regarding the flag design: In 1931 the definition of the "ornamental border" of the seal was defined as a “wreath of Virginia creeper” and in 1949 specific colors were defined in the design.
Pledge to the Virginia state flag:
"I salute the flag of Virginia with reverence and patriotic devotion to the ‘Mother of States and Statesmen,’ which it represents—the ‘Old Dominion,’ where liberty and independence were born."

This flag looks Great, flys high and proud! All in all it's a great deal. The old VA flag had been sun-bleached to a grey, see-through piece of material. We wanted the best appearance for the front of our Christian school. The difference is striking and the quality is superb! Thanks for being there.
