Georgia State Symbols and Emblems:
State Flag (2003-)

Georgia's newest flag was designed in May, 2003; it has three horizontal stripes, red, white, and red, with a blue square in the canton position (the upper left area of the flag). In the blue square is a circle of 13 white, five-pointed stars around the seal of the state of Georgia (pictured in yellow). The Georgia state seal pictures three pillars (symbolizing the three branches of government in the USA: the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial) under an arch (symbolizing the Constitution), the year 1776 (the date of the Declaration of Independence), and banners reading "CONSTITUTION," "JUSTICE," "WISDOM," and "MODERATION." Under the pillars are the words (in white), "IN GOD WE TRUST."

State Flag (2001-2003)

Georgia's previous official flag was adopted in January, 2001. Georgia's controversial flag before that had been based on the Confederate flag, which was a painful reminder of slavery to many people. The 2001 flag was designed as a compromise, picturing the older flag in miniature.

The flag has a deep blue field with the state seal in the center, surrounded by 13 white stars (that symbolize the original 13 colonies). The state seal pictures three pillars (symbolizing the three branches of government in the USA: the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial) under an arch (symbolizing the Constitution), the year 1776 (the date of the Declaration of Independence), and banners reading "CONSTITUTION," "JUSTICE," "WISDOM," and "MODERATION." Under the seal is a yellow banner that states, "GEORGIA'S HISTORY" and shows five flags. The flags are: the original US flag, the pre-1879 Georgia flag, the 1920-1956 Georgia flag, the controversial 1956-2001 Georgia flag, and the current US flag.
