Description: The Loudoun County, Virginia, flag is a banner of the county arms devised by the English College of Arms in 1968. These are based on the arms of the 4th Earl of Loudoun, who was a colonial governor of Virginia after whom the county was named. They are blazoned as gyronny of eight gules and scarlet, a bordure embattled vert goutty argent. The green bordure is intended to represent the county's agricultural economy and the white drops are milk, denoting the dairy industry.
