Montgomery Guards (GA) flag description

A description of the Montgomery Guards of Georgia co. flag.

DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST [AUGUSTA, GA], January 12, 1861, p. 3, c. 1

The Montgomery Guards.

The Montgomery Guards paraded yesterday afternoon, and with their showy uniforms and beautiful new banner, they made quite a handsome display. This is the youngest company in the city, but under the command of its energetic and efficient Commanding officer, Capt. Cleveland, it is gaining a position, of which officers and privates may well be proud. We hope to see the Guards encouraged by our citizens, and the ranks of the company largely increase in numbers.

The flag alluded to above is white silk, with an artistically executed coat of arms of Georgia on both sides, and is altogether very neat and pretty, and quite an ornament to the company. . .
