All of our printed Georgia flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

Brief History

The earliest known flag common to all Lithuania was a battle-flag from the early 15th Century. The flag, which came to be called the “Vytis”, or “pursuit-rider”, depicts a knight on horseback, charging forward with sword raised. The tail of the flag in the upper quarter is also of interest.

The Vytis had been the closest emblem to a national flag that Lithuania bore, until 1569, when the Commonwealth of Poland instated the country of Lithuania as an autonomous grand duchy in personal union through the Polish King.

In 1917 the February Revolution saw the overthrowing of the Russian Empire and Georgia joined with Armenia and Azerbaijan to create the Transcaucasian Democratic Federation. The flag was replaced with a yellow-black-red tricolour that resembles the modern German flag. This was short lived and in the same year the Democratic Republic of Georgia was created. This had a new flag and Coat of Arms.

The new Republic couldn’t take the might of the Soviet Empire and was brought together with Azerbaijan and Armenia to become the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic in 1922. It remained under soviet control until the break up of the Soviet Empire in 1990. During this time there was five variations of the Georgia SSR flag, all very similar apart from different characters in the left hand side.  The final flag of Georgia SSR featured a star in a blue sun with a blue bar in the upper part of the flag.

When Georgia became independent they brought back the Flag of the Democratic Republic of Georgia. The current flag is a symbol of the Georgian patriotic movement and the popular resistance party ‘The United National Movement’. It consists of a white flag with red cross and in each corner are bolnur-katskhuri crosses.

The Flag of the President of Georgia

Apart from the Civil, State and Ensign of Georgia since 2005 there has been the Flag of the President of Georgia.

This is a version of the Georgia Coat of Arms and is used on the president’s cars, in his agencies and Chancellery building.

The Coat of Arms of Georgia

The modern Coat of Arms of Georgia was adopted in 2004 and consists of a shield of St George on a horse that is tramping a dragon being pieced by a spear.

A crown is on top of the shield that is surrounded by two rampant lions and the motto “Strength is in Unity” underneath.

The Coat of Arms of Georgia

Since 2004 there has been a different flag for each section of the Military. Below are some examples of the ensigns and flags used by the Georgian Military.
