Virginia, Black (Ninety Percent) State

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.
