Pledge of Allegiance to Georgia Flag Legislation

Gov. Eugene Talmadge signed a joint resolution of the General Assembly adopting a pledge of allegiance to the Georgia state flag, which at the time consisted of three bars - red, white, and red - with a vertical blue band on which was centered the state seal. The new pledge stated: “I pledge allegiance to the Georgia flag and to the principles for which it stands; Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.”
