New Georgia Flag to Fly

We're continuing to follow the progress of Georgia's new state flag. Tomorrow the new flag will go up over the state capitol when Gov. Sonny Perdue signs the bill changing the banner. Lawmakers approved the new flag last month after weeks of debate.

But don't get too used to it. This flag is not necessarily permanent. Voters will get a chance next March to vote for this flag or the 2001 version.

Every flag change costs the state about $280,000.
