Georgia flag

Georgia's old flag was adopted in 1956 and used until January 30, 2001, when it was replaced by a new flag in 2001 and another in 2003. John Bell, chairman of Georgia's Democratic party in 1956, designed the 1956-2001 flag.

The flag is divided into two parts. The right side has the Battle Flag of the Confederacy, with 13 stars. The left side has Georgia's seal on a deep blue ground. 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."

Georgia was the 4th state in the USA; it became a state in 1788.
