Flag and emblem of Tbilisi - Images by Jens Pattke, 18 November 2007
The flag of the town (and Region) of Tbilisi is rectangular, white with a wide dark blue crossed fimbriated in gold. A graphical representation of the town of Tbilisi on a dark red background is placed in the middle of the cross, surrounded by seven golden seven-pointed stars.
The emblem of Tbilisi was adopted on 8 June 2005 by Municipal Resolution 15-1.
The emblem of the town of Tbilisi is "a Georgian shield" with round letters and the following composition: around a graphical representation of the capital letter "T" is the stylized design of a sparrow-hawk and pheasant, where the order of the letters is taken as a symbol. The emblem expresses the essence of the legend describing the city. Located on the emblem upper periphery are seven seven-pointed stars. The emblem is surrounded mainly with oak fronds - the symbol of eternity and power- on the bottom, which creates a cross-like partition where the word "Tbilisi" is written with capital (round letters) and nuskha khutsuri letters. The axial end of the emblem is water. The emblem of the town of Tbilisi is an heraldic emblem based on the town's legend.
