Virginia Flags

The official seal of the U.S. state of Virginia is called the Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Virginia state flag has the seal's obverse on a blue background. A state flag was first approved in April 1861, at the start of the American Civil War. It was reinstituted in 1912, and the General Assembly standardized it in February 1950.

A slain king at her feet represents tyranny, which is represented to have been defeated by the standing allegorical female figure of virtue. This is the only state flag in the United States to feature a type of nudity, as she has an exposed breast in the style of classical images of Amazons. "Thus, always to tyrants" is the meaning of the motto. The fly edge of the flag may be embellished with a white fringe; this is typically done when the flag is flown inside.
