Description

The flag of Georgia has a rather simple design. It consists of three red and white stripes. In the blue canton at the top left corner are thirteen white stars encircling the state’s golden coat of arms which consists of three pillars supporting an arch. The arch contains the word “constitution”, with a man wearing Revolution era garb standing beneath holding a sword. Ribbons declaring wisdom, justice and moderation wrap throughout the pillars. Under those pillars the words “In God We Trust” can be seen, the United States motto.

Meaning

The thirteen stars encompassing the coat of arms represent the first thirteen colonies. Each pillar represents the three branches of government: legislative, judicial and executive. The man holding a sword stands ready to protect the constitution at any cost.

History

Historically, the flag of Georgia has been through a lot. Georgia was the place where the U.S. flag had flown in the skies until the Civil War. In the mid-late 1800’s, the first flag designs had been made. Between the late 1800’s and mid 1900’s, the flag of Georgia has changed couple times, but the main design stayed the same. It consisted of red and white strips and a coat of arms on the left side, on a blue background. In the second half of 1900’s, the Georgia state flag consisted of a Confederate Battle Flag. The fact that the state flag consisted of a Confederate flag started to create a little controversy, especially when the state of Georgia hosted 1996 Olympic Games. Since then, pressure had been put on to create a new design. Due to this heavy persuasion, a new design was created in the early 2000’s, however it did not receive positive feedback by the public as it lacked a good, creative design. Not long after that, in 2003, a new design was created that is used to this day.
