The Act establishes a new design for the Georgia state flag, replacing the version adopted by the General Assembly in 1956. The Act also slightly modifies the design and description of the state seal; the new great seal is incorporated as a substantial portion of the new flag design. The Act also amends the Georgia Budget Act by requiring those state agencies eligible for the receipt of state funds to display the new flag; those agencies in noncompliance with this mandate are subject to denial of further appropriations. Finally, the Act preserves and protects existing state and local memorials and monuments to military service or personnel, including those involving the Confederate States of America. Specifically, the Act prohibits the removal, relocation or alteration of these types of monuments, including the sculptures graven into the face of Stone Mountain.
