Flag of Georgia
The flag of Georgia was adopted in January 2004 after the so-called “Rose Revolution”, and thus belongs to the newer flags. At that time, she was the symbol of the National Movement of the newly elected President Saakashvili. It consists of a large red St. George’s cross, which reaches to the edges of the flag, and four smaller red crosses located in the center of each of the resulting fields. The origin of the flag is dated to the 14th century, when an unknown Franciscan monk mentions a “white colored veil with five red crosses”. The cross is also said to be similar to the Jerusalem Cross, which was used by the conquerors of the Holy Land during the period when many monasteries were founded in Georgia as a sign of their piety.
