The flag of the state of West Virginia consists of the state's coat of arms on a white field with a dark blue border. The coat of arms, primarily consisting of the state seal, symbolizes the state's principal pursuits and resources.
The obverse side of the seal bears the legend "State of West Virginia" together with the state motto, Montani Semper Liberi ("mountaineers are always free"). A farmer stands to the left and miner to the right of a large ivy draped rock bearing the date of the state's admission to the Union, June 20, 1863. In front of the rock lie two rifles upon which rests a red Phrygian cap, or cap of liberty. The lower half of the coat of arms is wreathed by the rhododendron, the state flower. The white stands for purity while the blue border represents the Union.

West Virginia state flag proposed by Ken Morton - "Above and Below"
My version of designs by SimplisticFlags and Hans. he blue border is from the current flag and the colors are the official state colors (old gold and blue). The red flowers are based on the family arms of Francis H. Pierpont, the "Father of West Virginia.” The seven flowers with five petals represent the West Virginia's order of admission (35th). The arrangement of the flowers abstractly spells “WV." Posted by Preston Knapp
