About the flag of Richmond, Virginia

The city flag of Richmond, Virginia, was adopted in 1993. The flag contains a navy blue field in the upper two-thirds quadrant with two red and two white stripes beneath in the lower third of the flag. It features a silhouette of a person working a James River bateau down the James River. The boatman is a graphical depiction of a 14-foot tall bronze statue called "Headman" that stands on Brown's Island and commemorates the African American contribution to Richmond’s waterways. The nine stars on the flag represent the nine states that were once part of Virginia’s territory: Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana.

In a 2004 survey by the North American Vexillological Association, Richmond's city flag was ranked as the 15th best city flag in the nation.
