This ashtray is in the Trend shape, with a white body trimmed with gold. The seal used by the club is a seal of Colonial Virginia dating from after the restoration of Charles II in 1660. The Latin surrounding the seal, "En dat Virginia quintum", is a Virginia motto of the time referring to the King of England's five domains – England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Virginia.
