Some interesting facts about our state symbols. The Cherokee Rose was selected as state flower because of the removal of the Cherokee from the state in 1838 on what is now known as "Cherokee Trail of Tears. The seven white petals represent the seven clans of the Cherokee and the yellow center represents the gold for which the land was stolen. The Cherokee Rose still grows along the route these American Indians followed west.

The law that established the state songs specifies the version sung by Georgia native Ray Charles.
