Notes

  1. ^ The inititial designation was by gubernatorial proclamation.
  2. ^ The three words, "Wisdom", "Justice", and "Moderation", were in the definition of the state seal, but were never formally adopted independent of the seal.
  3. ^ The state seal was defined by the Georgia Constitution of 1798 and bore the date 1799. In 1914, the date was changed to 1776.
  4. ^ The previous State Song "Georgia" was composed by Lollie Belle Wylie
  5. ^ As governor, Jimmy Carter made it the state theater for the 1971-2 season. In 1992, the legislature made the designation formal and ongoing.
