The state of West Virginia’s flag was adopted back in March 7, 1929 and presently the flag is composed of a pure white background and has a border of blue stripes with the coat of arms in the center. It has a wreath of Rhododendron Maximum with a red ribbon on top that reads “Stage of West Virginia”. It would be interesting to know that in order to reproduce the flag at a lower cost, legislature ratified the current flag with the coat of arms included with the rhododendron appearing on both obverse and reverse. Located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States, Pennsylvania and Maryland are at the north, Virginia at the south, Kentucky and Ohio at the west.
The state shares the same origins of its name with the state of Virginia as well as with the state bird, which is the Cardinal. They are nicknamed the Mountain State found in their motto “Montani Semper Liberi” (Mountaineers are always free). The state flower is the Rhododendron, Sugar Maple is the state tree, the Black Bear is the state animal, Brook Trout as state fish, and the Golden Delicious Apple as the state fruit. They have 1 national forest, 9 state forests, and 37 state parks. More West Virginia Flag questions are .
