It looks like the Confederate battle flag may be removed from Georgia’s state flag. The current flag, which has flown since 2001, is ugly and still has a tiny rebel emblem, satisfying virtually no one. Governor
Roy Barnes Sonny Perdue advocated restoring the 1956-2001 flag during the campaign but has backed off. Now, a slight variant of the 1920-1956 flag will face the current one in a non-binding referendum. I must say, while I understand the desire of some to pay homage to their Confederate heritage, the divisiveness of this issue and the time wasted on it over the last several years is just absurd.
