Virginia - Yorktowm copy.png|My third design for a Virginia state flag. This design is intended as an abstract representation of the battle of Yorktown; with the French on the left, the Americans on the right, and the British trapped in the middle. The colors correspond to the colors of the uniforms of the three armies. In addition, the red wedge creates a "V", standing, if you like, for Virginia. (Posted by Ken Morton)

VA_PNG.png|Used design from SimplisticFlags as a starting point. The imagery and colors pull from the state seal dating to 1776. The seal contains a female figure wearing blue personifying the Roman virtue of Virtus and the state itself. Virtus stands in a peaceful pose indicating a battle already won. Her long spear is pointed downward to the ground and her other weapon, a parazonium, is sheathed. The sword of Tyranny lies prostrate beneath the foot of Virtus, symbolizing Great Britain's defeat by Virginia. The crown fallen beside him symbolizes the state's release from the monarchical control of Great Britain. His robe is purple, a reference to Julius Caesar and the Etruscan king of Rome, Tarquinius Priscus. All of these elements and a V shape representing the state are contained in the flag.
