VirginiaRedesign02.png|[https://imgur.com/gallery/Zg9ftpj/comment/1499276057 "Virtue Over Tyranny"] : My proposal for a new state flag for the Commonwealth of Virginia. This flag contains 10 five-point stars that represent Virginia. (10th state admitted into the union) They are laid out symmetrically on the same field of blue currently used in the flag. There is a spear and sword crossed as well as centered to represent the weapons carried by "The Goddess Virtue" as well as a fallen crown representing the fall of tyranny. This is to depict what is currently on the state seal, and the state motto in a more modern and simplistic way. (Sic Semper Tyrannis - Thus Always to Tyrants)

Revision as of 02:26, December 15, 2019

The flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia consists of the seal of Virginia against a blue background. The current version of the flag was adopted at the beginning of the American Civil War in 1861. The flag may be decorated with a white fringe along the fly.

The Latin motto, "Sic semper tyrannis," at the bottom of the state seal means "Thus Always to Tyrants." This quote is attributed to Brutus during the assassination of Julius Caesar in Rome. The woman is "Virtus the genius of the Commonwealth, dressed as an Amazon" (Code of Virginia § 1-500) and represents Virginia. The prostrate man represents tyranny; note the fallen crown to the right. The tyrant is holding both a chain and a scourge.
