Flag protesters line Moultrie City Hall

August 13, 2002

While Governor Roy Barnes was in Southwest Georgia, flag protestors took the opportunity to demonstrate their allegiance to the old state flag.

At least twenty protestors showed up outside Moultrie City Hall with flags and signs in hand. They say they are not pleased with the way Governor Barnes changed the flag design.

Protestors want the citizens of Georgia to vote and make that decision.

The new flag design was voted on by Georgia lawmakers in January of 2001.
