Adopted in 2001, the new Georgia state flag is the most recent of all the fifty states. A yellow ribbon stretches across the bottom of the blue field displaying the five flags that have flown over Georgia between 1776 and 2001 displaying the title "GEORGIA'S HISTORY." On the far left of the ribbon is the Betsy Ross thirteen star flag and the current fifty star U.S. flag is on the far right, with three state flags of the past between them. "IN GOD WE TRUST" is below the ribbon; the Georgia state seal is above. Thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies encircle the seal.
