The flag has a deep blue field contains the seal of Virginia with the Latin motto "Sic Semper Tyrannis" - "Thus Always to Tyrants". Adopted in 1776. The two figures are acting out the meaning of the motto. Both are dressed as warriors. The woman, Virtue, represents Virginia. The man holding a scourge and chain shows that he is a tyrant. His fallen crown is nearby. Listen to the West Virginia anthem, “Carry Me Back to Old Virginia” words and music by James A. Bland. With this video you can see the flag and hear the anthem. Good for all students.
