Description of the flag

Here is the flag of Charles City County, located in southeastern Virginia. The flag is probably the most unique in the Commonwealth, having a shape more reminiscent of Scottish clan standards than of the typical square or rectangular flags. I found a photograph of the flag on the county's website, and have modified it to FOTW standards. The flag is about 2 ½ to 3 times longer than it is tall, tapering to a rounded fly. The first third of the flag from the hoist features the coat of arms from the county seal. Described in basic heraldic terms, the coat of arms would probably be: per chevron Or and sable, in chief two wreaths vert, in base a cross of the first, overall seven mullets white and one mullet of the first on a bordure of the third. The remainder of the flag is made of six alternating stripes of black and green. Diagonally across the stripes are two bands of white bearing the motto in black "DELECTAT AMOR PATRIAE." Between the white bands are three examples of the crest from the coat of arms: two white crescents back-to-back topped by a gold crown.
