About the Georgia Flag

 

Georgia has flown more flags than perhaps any other region of the country.  Variations of Spanish, British, French, US, Confederate, and state flags have all represented the state at one time or another.  

 

The Georgia flag underwent three incarnations before the 1956 state legislature settled on a design  that remained in place for the next 45 years.  This flag featured the stars and bars of the Confederate battle flag, and was interpreted by some to be a racist symbol.  Because of the controversy, some Georgia cities and private businesses would not fly the state flag, for fear of being branded as racist.  

 

In an attempt to end the controversy once and for all, Governor Roy Barnes, on January 31, 2001, quickly and quietly signed into law a bill to change the design of the state flag.  The measure was signed and the new flag hoisted into place less than 24 hours after the legislation passed the state senate.

 

The new banner is the creation of Atlanta architect Cecil Alexander.  Commissioned with designing a "compromise" flag, Alexander placed the state seal on a blue field, surrounding it with thirteen white stars denoting Georgia's place as one of the thirteen original colonies.  Below the seal on the blue field is a gold banner with the phrase "Georgia's History" placed over five flags: the thirteen-star US flag (1777-1795), Georgia's first flag (1879), Georgia's 1920-1956 flag, Georgia's controversial 1956 flag and the fifty-star US flag.  Below the gold banner on the blue field the words "In God We Trust" are inscribed in gold.

The state seal is appropriately the color of "Dahlonega Gold."  On the seal are three pillars supporting an arch, symbolic of the three branches of government.  A man standing with sword drawn defends the Constitution, whose principals of "Wisdom, Justice and Moderation" are inscribed on banners adorning the pillars.  Encircling these images are the words "State of Georgia 1776,"  the date commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
