State Flag of Georgia

The current flag of Georgia contains three horizontal bands colored red and white with a blue square on the canton with the state coat of arms.  Around the coat of arms are thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States.   The flag replace the previous flag used from 1956 to 2001 which contained the Confederate Battle flag on it.  The flag was found offensive because of its roots to the Confederate States of America and its current use as a symbol for many white supremacy groups.  African –Americans found it mostly offensive because it wasn’t adopted during the Civil War but in 1956 during the Civil Rights Movement.
