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 dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
