Georgia State Motto

Georgia Motto

Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation

The state motto of Georgia is “Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.” It has not been made official in Georgia’s legislature but it appears on the state flag, seal, and the Georgia quarter.

The significance of the motto is its reference to the three pillars which support the Constitution: Wisdom guiding the activity of the legislature; Justice the guiding principles of the judicial system; and Moderation guiding the executive branch.
