The current version of the Georgia Flag bases itself on the 1st national Confederacy flag, with stars and bars. The description of Georgia State Flag is as follows. It is adorned with 2 horizontal red stripes of the same width, separated by a white stripe. In the top left corner there is blue square bearing the golden Georgia coat of arms. This seal on the Georgia State Flag has 3 pillars that support an arch. They stand for the 3 wings of the government, which are the executive, legislative and judiciary. There is also a man brandishing a sword, who is said to guard the Constitution that teaches the principle of justice, wisdom and moderation. On top of the emblem are the words, "In God We Trust." Surrounding the emblem are 13 white stars that suggest that Georgia was one of the first colonies of the US.

Georgia Flag History
The history of the Georgia State Flag reveals the presence of many flags that flew in the state. Each time the colors, symbols and patterns of the Georgia State Flag were altered. During the time period of 1956 to 2001, the Georgia State Flag was disparate from the current one. There were 2 fields, one bearing the emblem and the other, a blue cross, with stars arranged on it. Between 2001 and 2003, the Georgia State Flag had a blue field, with the emblem in the center. A ribbon below it bore the 5 different flags of US and Georgia.

The Georgia Flag is a perfect example, denoting the effects of historical events on the various state symbols.
