Georgia State Flags
The Georgia State Flag commemorates the national flag of the Confederacy, the “Stars and Bars”. Adopted on May 8, 2003, the Georgia flag became the state’s third flag in twenty-seven months- a national record. Georgia also leads the nation in the number and variety of different flags. From 1956 to 2001, Georgia’s state flag featured the prominent Confederate Battle Flag. This aroused great deal of controversy, particularly prior to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. The current flag displays two red stripes separated by a single white stripe. A blue canton containing a ring of 13 white stars encompasses the state’s coat of arms in gold. The arch in the coat of arms symbolizes the state’s constitution and is protected by an armed figure dressed in the attire of the American Revolutionary War. The pillars represent the three branches of government. The Georgia Seal includes the words of the state motto: “Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.”
