Today, on January 14, Georgia celebrates state flag day. The US Embassy responded to the celebration, noting that Georgia has been part of a whole European family for centuries.
“Congratulations on Georgian Flag Day! 2021 was a significant year for the history of your beautiful flag, which, thanks to the recent discovery of a copper coin can now be traced back to King Davit Aghmashenebeli in the 12th century. This symbolism proves once again that Georgia has been part of the European family of nations for many centuries,” notes US Embassy.
