About This Item

GeorgiaRepublic

Patch of flag of  Georgia Republic.  The official flag of Georgia  is the "five-cross flag", restored to official use on January 14, 2004, after a break of some 500 years.  It was previously the flag of the medieval Georgian kingdom and had been used as the official symbol of the United National Movement political party.  The Georgian national flag 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 crosses of the same color as the large cross.
 
The central element of the flag is the cross of St. George, the patron saint of Georgia. This cross is also the national flag of England (whose patron saint is also Saint George) and a component of the Union Flag.  According to the Georgian scholar Giorgi Gabeskiria, the four extra crosses were probably added during the reign of George V of Georgia, who drove out the Mongols.  Around that time, the new design was adopted as a variant of the Jerusalem cross, a symbol used by crusaders in the Holy Land, which likewise used a large central cross with four smaller "crosslets" in the four quadrants. The crosses are said to have represented the five Holy Wounds of Christ.

I picked this one up at the geo-event held at Disney Springs. I'm down here for only 10 days and then I am headed back to Maine, a very rural state. I will find a good place to place it but, in the mean time, I will have it "visit" as I cache. Thanks for sharing your TB with me.
