Collectible State Flag Fridge Magnet from the Mountain State
The gorgeous Appalachian Mountains are a place where a person can fall in love with the land, which is why West Virginians are so fiercely loyal to the state they've made home. The state flag fridge magnet is a good keepsake souvenir from West Virginia if you are fortunate to spend some time here, and is also a symbol of state pride for mountaineers.
The state flag shows their coat of arms on a white background with a plain blue stripe around the border. The state motto is printed under the coat of arms: "Montani Semper Liberi" which is Latin for "Mountaineers are Always Free." You can see a farmer and a miner standing in the center of the picture, the men who settled the state. Rhododendrons are the state flower and form a circle around the coat of arms on the flag.
Spend some Time Enjoying the Beauty and Wonder of the West Virginian Mountains
If all you have time for is to drive along the West Virginia Turnpike, you will still be blessed to witness some of America's most enticing scenic views. But if you will just slow things down a little and take some time to explore the area, you will find yourself amidst the magnificent splendor of nature. West Virginia is abundant with protected national parks that offer swimming, hiking, picnicking, paddle-boating, fishing...even horseshoes.
Visit the Tomlinson Run National Park or North Bend State Park for some of these enjoyable activities. You can visit a splendid nature preserve and see animals like bear and wolves that have been living in this area for thousands of hears at the West Virginia Wildlife Preserve. Snowshoe Mountain is probably the most famous area in the state, with skiing in the winter and horseback riding in summer.
