Georgia flag

Georgia's 2001 flag was adopted on January 30, 2001. Georgia's previous, controversial flag was based on the Confederate flag, which was a painful reminder of slavery to many people. The 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.

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