The Georgia State Flag has three red and white stripes and the state coat of arms on a blue field in the upper left corner. Thirteen stars surrounding the seal denote Georgia's position as one of the original thirteen colonies.

On the seal, three pillars supporting an arch represent the three branches of government legislative, judicial and executive.

A man with his sword drawn is defending the Constitution, whose principles are wisdom, justice and moderation. The date 1776 represents the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The current flag's design was adopted on May 8, 2003.
