Sic semper tyrannis is a Latin phrase meaning "thus, always, to tyrants". It is the official motto of the Commonwealth of Virginia, our humble home. We've taken the classic Great Seal of Virginia and updated it with a modern twist.
Virtus, the genius of the Commonwealth, has had her arsenal augmented with a modern rifle beside her standard spear, and her headgear replaced with a modern combat helmet complete with panoramic night vision goggles. Unchanged, her foot is on the form of Tyranny represented by the body of her foe, slain in battle.
