Flag of Georgia 🇬🇪

Flag of Georgia

The flag of Georgia 🇬🇪 was adopted in January 2004 after the so-called "Rose Revolution", therefore it is one of the newest flags. At that time, it was a symbol of the National Movement of newly elected President Saakashvili. It consists of large red St. George cross that reaches the edges of the flag, and four smaller red crosses placed in the middle of each of the resulting fields. The origin of the flag dates back to the 14th century, when an unknown Franciscan monk mentioned the "white-colored veil with five red crosses." The cross is also similar to the cross of Jerusalem, which was used by the conquerors of the Holy Land during a period when many monasteries were founded in Georgia as a demonstration of their faith.
