Georgia has been through so many flags in the last few years it feels like the state is playing musical chairs. The debate over the Georgia flag has been painful for those that wanted to keep it and those that wanted to get rid of it. The opponents of the Georgia flag that contained the stars and bars of the Confederate battle flag fought to have it removed. The flag with the Confederate battle cross was removed without the approval of Georgia's voters and was replaced with a hideous flag that was voted as the worst flag in the United States. Eventually another flag was introduced as a compromise. Few know that the current flag is also a Confederate flag. Although nine of the thirteen stars on the Perdue Counterfeit Flag represents northern states, they do not represent the thirteen Confederate States.
The Starry St. Andrews Cross of the Confederate National Flag, Battle Flag, and Naval Ensign—THE Rebel Emblem—is today one of the most loved and displayed banners on our planet. The flag is not only the best known symbol of the Confederacy and old south, it is universally recognized as the emblem of the South Itself as a region and society. ALL residents of Georgia can proudly display a Southern Heritage (state approved) auto license plate on their vehicle. In this day of political correctness, the symbols of our honorable ancestors need to be seen by the public.
The Barnes flag was voted the "ugliest flag in North America by the North American Vexillological Association, drawing far more attention than all others did. NAVA members and the public both gave the new Georgia flag the lowest score—2.4 points—by the largest margin of any flag. Some even asked to give it negative points. They disparaged Georgia’s flag as "a scalawag", "desolating", "simply awful", "hideous", and "by far the ugliest". Its complex design violates all the principles of good flag design, incorporating a seal, lettering, and a series of miniature historic flags (in incorrect order). One person derided it as "Five Flags Under Georgia".
More Southerners died fighting under the flag of the Confederate States of America than have died in all other American wars combined. Georgia sent 125,000 men to defend the South: 30,000 of them lost their lives. To put it in perspective, less than 7,000 Georgians lost their lives in World War II, more than four times as many Georgians died fighting for Southern Independence
