Flag of Georgia (GIF)



The flag of Georgia (Georgian: საქართველოს სახელმწიფო დროშა) is a white flag with four small red crosses in the sections formed by a large red cross extending to the edge of the flag. The five crosses in the flag are sometimes interpreted as symbolizing the Five Holy Wounds or the Messiah and the Four Evangelists. The color white in heraldry represents innocence, purity, and wisdom, and the color red symbolizes courage, bravery, justice, and love. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on January 24, 2004.

On the red shield on its coat of arms, St. George is seen crushing a dragon with her horse and attacking its head with her spear. The shield is supported by two lions and has the Georgian crown at the top.

The Georgia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
