Description of the flag

The municipal flag of Radford, Virginia, consists of the city seal centered on a white background, according to the Public Service Librarian at the Radford Public Library.
Ron Lahav, 4 December 2008

The lower part of the city seal seems to be visible on a photo of the Radford City Council, available on the city website: www.radford.va.us/citycouncil.html.  The seal of Radford, modelled after the state seal of Virginia but with a yellow background, is shown on Chapter 12 "Obscenity, indecency and the law", Pr. Bill Kovarik's class in Media Law and Ethics, Radford University. "Decisions by local, state or federal authorities to suppress obscene or indecent materials are rarely consistent. One interesting example of this inconsistency involves partial nudity in official symbols. The seal of the state of Virginia, which shows the Roman Goddess Virtus dressed in Amazon garb standing over the body of a tyrant, has remained exposed since the seal was designed in 1776. ('Sic Semper Tiranus' means Thus Always to Tyrants). The state seal was apparently too candid for the city of Radford, Va., where the same Goddess was given a brazier but, strangely, an exposed midriff and panties."
