The Georgia state flag has three horizonal stripes - red, white, red. Centered in a blue field in the upper left of the flag and encircled by thirteen white stars, representing Georgia as one of the original thirteen colonies, is the state coat of arms with "In God We Trust" in gold letters below it. The arch symbolizes the state's constitution, which a colonial figure guards with drawn sword. The pillars represent the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the state government. Displayed on banners wrapping around the columns is the state motto - Wisdom, Justice and Moderation..
Georgia flags for outdoor use are constructed of a durable nylon fabric especially developed for flag use. Nylon's tight weave provides maximum beauty and flyability as well as brilliant, fast colors. Its weave helps shed pollution, dirt and grime that the looser weave alternatives absorb. Nylon is water repellent and mildew resistant.
