Virginia, USA

My last card for today comes from my dear Chrissy .....
Well, Chrissy knows i love flag cards, so she thought i will maybe like this one...well, there is never a miss with flag cards for me ;)
Well, since the back of the cards are somewhat smarter than me (sometimes) ill tell you what it says :))

VIRGINIA

A deep blue field contains the seal of Virginia, with the Latin motto "Sic Semper Tyrannis" - "Thus Ever to Tyrants". Adopted in 1776. The two figures are acting out the meaning of the motto. Both are dressed as warriors. The woman, Virtus, represents Virginia. The man holding a scourge and chain, shows that he is a tyrant. His fallen crown symbolizes his loss of authority over commonwealth. Eight U.S Presidents came from Virginia.

Chrissy, have you maybe considered to run for one as well?? You'll have my support :)
And thanks a million for the card...its just perfect for me! :)

Janet Jackson was criticized for having a "wardrobe malfunction", showing her breast.
It was unexpected, then and there.
But for the woman on Virginia's seal, IT IS expected, so it should be OK, right? :D
