The flag of Georgia consists of a white base with a red cross through the center of it and dividing the flag into quarters. In the middle of each quarter is a smaller red cross.
History: This Georgian flag was adopted on January 14, 2004, making it possibly the world's newest flag. It was used for about three years as the flag of the National Movement, whose leader was Mikhail Saakashvili, the current President of Georgia (2004). Georgia gained its independence from the Soviet Union on April 9, 1991. The first record of the five-cross flag design dates to the mid 14th century when an unknown Franciscan monk wrote that the kingdom's flag was "a white-colored cloth with five red crosses on it."
Interesting Facts: The basic design of this Georgian flag was in use over 500 years ago as it was previously the flag of the medieval Georgian kingdom. (source: worldflags101)
