For outdoor (or indoor) display, this flag is made from 100% heavyweight nylon fabric specially treated to minimize sun and chemical deterioration. This single reverse flag is dyed and finished with strong canvas headings and brass grommets.
The State Seal depicted on the flag of Virginia, which is blue, dates almost from the Declaration of Independence. It shows Virtue, dressed like an Amazon and armed with sword and spear, trampling down the figure of Tyranny, whose crown is fallen and who grasps a broken chain and a whip. The motto is Sic Semper Tyrannis or "Thus ever to Tyrants."
