Unauthorized but unchallenged: Georgia flag 1906-1920

Between 1902 and 1906, some unknown person or flag manufacturer added a gold-outlined white shield to the coat of arms, placed the date "1799" below the arms and added a red ribbon with "Georgia" below the shield.

Although the General Assembly hadn't authorized any changes to the state flag, apparently no one contested the new version.
