Grits is Georgia’s official prepared food. Prepared by Native Americans centuries ago, grits have come to be identified with the South. Southern grits are bits of ground corn or hominy prepared as a simple breakfast dish or incorporated into gourmet recipes.
Warwick is billed as the Grits Capital of Georgia and is home to the annual National Grits Festival.
Georgia also has an official dog (the adoptable dog), creed (Georgian’s creed), and atlas (Atlas of Georgia).
Georgia is the only state with an official school and historic house. Plains High School was attended by future pResident Jimmy Carter. The Old Governor’s Mansion in Milledgeville was spared from destruction during the Civil War.
Georgia is among the states with an official tartan. The Georgia Tartan is based on a historic European design. The colors blue, green, and red represent the sky, forests and Georgia’s rich red clay.
