A short history of the Georgia State flag
In 1733 Georgia was founded by the British in 1733, and named after King George II. It became a state after the Revolutionary War in 1776, and seceded from the Union in 1861. It was re-admitted in July 1870. Georgia is one of those states whose flag recalls the Confederacy,(Which used a version of the Stars and Bars during the Civil War). The Stars and Bars were the first Confederate flag. In a report of March 4, 1861, it was recommended by the “"Committee" on a Proper Flag for the Confederate States of America. This committee indicated that the flag should be "of a red field with a white space extending horizontally through the center, and equal in width to one-third of the flag, and the red spaces above and below to be of the same width as the white, and the union blue extending down through the white space, and stopping at the lower red space. Then in the center of the union a circle of white stars corresponding in number (seven) with the States in the Confederacy". This flag was used during the Civil War with the state seal within the seven stars, by the Georgian troops. In 1879 the new flag was similar, but without the seal and stars, and the blue canton extended to the full depth of the flag. On July 1,1956 the Stars and bars of the old flag were replaced by the Confederate Battle Flag.
