Grayson is a city in Gwinnett County, Georgia, United States. The population
was 765 at the 2000 census." - from Wikipedia:
More about the city and its history at city's website: http://www.cityofgrayson.org/history.asp.
What is interesting for us is that the city adopts the flag:
"The city of Grayson now has its own official flag, thanks to action Monday night by the City Council. The flag, patterned from the city seal adopted in the early 1980s, has a school bell as its centerpiece showing the bell from the original Grayson High School, along with cotton bolls representing the agricultural history of the town. It features the motto, "Steadfast and True," the year the city was chartered (1901) and three stripes. The green and gold on the flag represent Grayson High School's colors.
"We needed to do this," Grayson Mayor Jim Hinkle said. "The city of Grayson has been populated by good folks interested in the ideals of what Grayson is all about, small town values." Hinkle added that the city, which boasts a population of around 2,800, used to be a big cotton growing area in years past. Southern Impressions, which does the signage for the city, designed the layout for the flag." - the story by Randy Cox for Gwinnett Daily Post: http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/main.asp?SectionID=6&SubSectionID=6&ArticleID=15143&TM=37709.52.
