1861 Virginia regimental seal
This is a reproduction of an 1861 Virginia Regimental flag. We call it “unreconstructed” because it was created prior to the Reconstruction period of Virginia’s history.
Most people of the Old Dominion have no idea that our great state ever had a different design for our official seal. Even worse, they have no idea that our once proud seal was redesigned by carpetbaggers to showcase our defeat at the hands of the Federals.
During the War of Northern Aggression, Virginia regiments flew their beloved state flags with the above design upon them. Our Lady Virtus stood proud, fully covered by her breast plate. Sword in hand, defeated tyrant at her feet. Spear Point up and ready for battle.
Disgustingly, she was replaced by a Roman slave girl (in the modern flag). Armor stripped away; her breast now exposed. The sword is gone from her hands, and the spear tip ground in the dirt in defeat. Virginia was no longer a warrior, but a conquered and exposed slave.
But for decades, Virginians have returned to our Unreconstructed Seal to reclaim our birthright. And in the wake of our governor’s tyrannical assault on our liberties and rights, this flag has become the official symbol of resistance to this regime.
At one time, Northern allies and sympathizers of the Confederate Cause wore the Copper Penny in their hats to show everyone where their loyalties lay. Now, real Virginians are wearing a badge or flying the 1861 Virginia flag, to show off the same thing.
Buy yours now and fly it proudly to show that you stand with the Old Dominion and against this rogue government occupying Richmond!
