October is Libra Month

Libra is the astrological sign of the scales, and scales appear on several US Flags. The most prominent display of Libra's icon is upon the state flag of New York.
Coincidentally New York's
'fraternal twin' New Jersey has a city that just as well utilizes the proverbial scales of justice: New Jersey's largest city, Newark. In fact both flags have the same Goddesses in the supporter position.

City vs. State
Flag of Newark City & Flag of New York State

In New Jersey Justice is sitting and has her sword pointed into the ground, but in New York Justice is standing blindfolded and the sword is pointing up



Lady Liberty is on the left in both flags, both holding liberty poles with liberty hats on top. On New York State's flag she is erect and facing forward. On Newark, New Jersey's flag she is leaning on a fag of sticks with an olive branch resting under her left armpit.
