Virginia

The flag of Virginia, in the United States, consists of a stylized version of the image in the Virginia state seal in the center of a blue field. The same design appears on the reverse side of the flag.

SymbolismEdit

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" 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.

CriticismEdit

Many schoolteachers and parents object to the design on the state seal, particularly the woman's breast, which is not fully covered. The lady killing the man is also disliked by many. [citation needed]

TriviaEdit

It is the only American state flag to represent any form of nudity.
