West Virginia, Black (Ninety Percent) State

A white field is bordered in dark blue. West Virginia’s flag displays a rock containing the date June 20, 1863, the day West Virginia became a state. The two men represent farming and mining. Below them are two rifles with a “Liberty Cap” on top the rifles. A banner ribbon includes the state motto, “Mountaineers Are Always Free.” Around the picture are a wreath of rhododendron and the name of the state on a red ribbon.
