We have a beauty contest in Georgia today:
Flag Georgia flag 2003


Flag Georgia flag 2001

In addition to the presidential primary, voters will participate in a nonbinding referendum on the state flag, choosing between the blue banner adopted in 2001 or the red, white and blue flag passed last year. The 1956 flag with the Confederate battle emblem is not an option.

The non-binding nature of the referendum and the exclusion of the 1956 flag has angered some, but their enthusiasm has cooled somewhat in recent weeks. But politicians would be wise to heed the lesson of Roy Barnes and the price he paid for altering the flag.

As evident from my sidebar, I support the 2003 flag.
