The current Georgia Flag received adoption on May 8, 2003. The flag has three red and white stripes. While the state coat of arms rests on a blue field in the upper left corner. In the coat of arms, the arch symbolizes the state’s Constitution and the pillars represent the three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. The words of the state motto, “Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation,” are wrapped around the pillars, guarded by a male figure dressed in Colonial attire like a soldier of the American Revolution, with a drawn sword representing the defense of the Constitution. An additional motto, In God We Trust, appears under these elements, though it is not part of the state seal. In the center of the canton is also a circle of 13 white stars. These stars symbolizing Georgia and the other 12 original states that formed the United States of America.
