Georgia’s flag, also known as the “Five-cross Flag,” returned to use in 2004 after a 500 year break. The original version used in the 5th century simply featured a St. George’s cross. It became the symbol of the United National Movement party in the early 2000’s before being formally adopted. The 4 small crosses around a large central cross recalls the days of crusades and pilgrimages to the Holy Land. The 5 crosses are thought to represent the 5 wounds of Christ.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Georgia’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
