Georgia flag

The flag of Georgia is a white rectangle, with in its central portion a large red cross touching all four sides of the flag. In the four corners there are four bolnur-katskhuri crosses of the same colour. The design of the Georgian national flag is credited to the Georgian king Vakhtang I Gorgasali who introduced it in the 5th century AD. The current flag was restored to official use on 7 January 2004, after the Rose Revolution.

The flag is also known as the Five Cross Flag (Georgian: ხუთი ჯვარის დროშა, khuti jvaris drosha). The national flag of Georgia, as described in the decree of the President of Georgia of 7 January 2004, “is a white rectangle, with in its central portion a large red cross touching all four sides of the flag. In the four corners there are four bolnur-katskhuri crosses of the same colour.”

The proportions of the flag are in the ratio of 3:4. The Georgian flag was used by the Georgian patriotic movement following the country's independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. The flag was designed by a group of Georgian students in Tbilisi in the early 1990s.
