    Unknown County  


Georgia Day (Birthday of Georgia) is February 12.

Fort King George was the first English settlement in Georgia. Built in 1721 and abandoned in 1732. It was located a mile east of present-day Darien, in Coastal Georgia.

Although King George II signed Georgia's charter on April 21, 1732, it was not witnessed at Westminster "by Writ of Privy Seal" until June 9, 1732. Georgia, named for George II, was now a Royal Colony.

The new legislative assembly on March 15, 1758 divided the colony into eight Parishes: Christ Church,   Saint Matthews,   St. George,   St. Philip,   St. John,  St. Andrew, and St. James.

In 1765, Georgia's colonial assembly added four more parishes by dividing the land south of the Altamaha River. They were St. David, St. Patrick, St. Thomas, and St. Mary.


Georgia designated the Cherokee rose (Rosa laevigata) as the official state floral emblem in 1916 (with support from the Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs). The name "Cherokee Rose" is derived from the Cherokee Indians who widely distributed the plant. The flower is waxy white with a large golden center surrounded by vivid green leaves. The Cherokee rose is a hardy plant with a profusion of thorns, blooming in early spring (with sometimes a second flowering in the fall under favorable conditions).
