Virginia Flag Redesign
🏴 3' x 4.5' Virginia Flag redesign. Durable polyester Virginia flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: Designed by Virginia native Alex Avendaño in 2022, this redesign caught my eye on Reddit and I thought, "Wow, I couldn't have redesigned it better myself!" So I reached out and he agreed to let it be part of our Better State Flag series. His design notes state:
Blue - Represents the Virginia skies, as well as the many rivers that are found throughout the state.
Sword & Crown - the sword going through the crown is an element already seen on the current Virginia flag and it reflects its motto “sic semper tyrannis” (thus always to tyrant).
White Chevron - represents purity and it forms a “V” which stands for Virginia.
Red - represents England the states colonizer and it also represents the immense influence the English once had, it also represents blood and sacrifice.
A few months after starting Flags For Good, I realized I could fulfill my childhood dream of redesigning bad US State flags. So that's what I'm doing!
Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
