Official West Virginia State Flag 1929 – Present (Printed Polyester)

The official West Virginia State Flag design was adopted by the State Legislature on March 7th, 1929. The artwork consists of the state’s coat of arms centered on a pure white background bordered by a blue stripe. The coat of arms depicts imagery of the resources and interests of the state. In the center is a large rock draped with ivy and inscribed with “June 20, 1863,” which is the date of West Virginia’s statehood. Two crossed hunting rifles appear on the ground in front of the boulder with a Phrygian cap (Cap of Liberty) to illustrate the importance of the state’s ability to bear arms and protect its own liberty and freedom. A farmer and a miner figure are on either side of the rock. The farmer (who is also a forester) is standing with an ax and plow in front of a cornstalk and a sheaf of wheat. He represents agriculture and the abundant resource of trees for lumber the state offers. The miner figure holds a pickaxe and stands before two barrels, a blacksmith’s anvil, with a sledgehammer. These icons represent coal mining and industry. This artwork is surrounded on three sides by a rhododendron wreath (West Virginia’s state flower) and topped with a red unfurled banner that reads “State of West Virginia”. A second red ribbon just below the icons contains the state’s motto “Montani Semper Liberi” which is Latin for “mountaineers are always free”. This is the third West Virginia State Flag design. The previous two flags were adopted in 1905 and 1907, but both proved to be impractical.
