This year's flag crew was Michael Orelove, Jim Akins, George Fisher, Shawn Huntley, Hal Cleek, Carl John, Hans Mercer, Jim Carroll, and Kirby Day. Use of the lift truck was donated again by Tyler Rentals.
"This year we have the new Georgia state flag flying along Egan Drive near Good Hardware," said Michael Orelove. The new Georgia state flag was approved in 2003, after the governor signed a bill replacing an unpopular design adopted in 2001. The 2001 design succeeded Georgia's 1956 flag which was dominated by a large Confederate emblem.
