I went to Aragon school for eight years and played football for coach Maddox..The only school colors I ever saw were green and white jerseys and beige pants with a red stripe.Our basketball colors were also green and white.Where did the purple come from.

I never heard of the Purple Pirates, all I ever heard about were the Aragon Rebels, and the colors were green and white.

I agree where did that purple come from? Should be GREEN and WHITE.

This must have been way before my time, because I've never heard of the Purple Pirates, all I've ever heard about was the Aragon Rebels (green and white), and I'm way past Senior Citizen status.

Are you kidding me Mr. Mayor.......Your first 3 goals after taking office were a motto, a seal and a flag? What a joke . Aragon is running rampant with meth and other drugs, it has virtually turned into the Ghetto in the village and these were your first three goals?

They need to burn the entire village like they did the school and mill. Everything would look better and all the meth heads would have to relocate back to Portland. It would be a good thanksgiving, we could fry or grill all the ducks from the millpond. It's a win win situation. Lets do it!

I must be missing something, you are talking about a back in the day elementary school colors and the council is adopting a city flag. You peps in Aragon are so ignorant it's funny:):) and for whoever posted they miss gazz your brain must be fried or you're one of the many (family) she kept from jail.

You are coming down off meth right?I was at a few of the meetings when the colors were being considered.The question being ask at these meetings were about the school colors.These are the colors they wanted to incorporate into the flag scheme.Most of us early retirees remember the green and white of the Aragon Rebel football team.However,in all fairness to the Mayor and council I just today learned that purple and gold was used earlier on the basketball programs and I spoke with one man who was there when they changed those uniforms to green and white.

@notsoaragon.......so just because someone says they miss Brenda their brain is fried, or they are family she has kept out of jail? You are an IDIOT!!!
Brenda was born and raised in Aragon, she has many friends that love her, and supported her during each election. And, NO I am not family, nor do I do drugs,nor have I ever been in jail.
You are the one who's brain is fried, obviously you know absolutely nothing about Aragon or it's history, so why don't you worry about Rockmart fool!!!!!

I know more than you think, X family, thank God. Why should I worry about Rockmart, at least their city colors didn't come from Goodyear Elementary Mustangs. You peeps in aragon are so funny, you thought when you finished aragon school you was done and ready for life. IGNORANT!!!!

The mayor is right on! Unite the citizens under one motto, one seal and one flag and there is no end to the accomplishments you can achieve. Aragonites, this color debate is just one of the small challenges we have to overcome on our journey to greatness. ONWARD. Under one flag, one purpose, one mayor.....let's claim the victory.

I've always been told by the old timers that Aragon School use to have a high school, that it wasn't always just an elementary school, does anyone know if this is true?

@notsoaragon......I don't think I would call anyone ignorant if I were you.......go back and read your comment. Aragon should be capitalized.......and you should have said "you were done" not "you was done". You must have dropped out of school in the fifth grade.

TO: notsoaragon--- please change your name to notsosmart. It wouldn't have made much sense for the city of Rockmart to have chosen Goodyear Elementary as their colors, Rockmart has more than ONE elementary school--- ding a ling!

The reason for not capitalizing aragon is that I have no respect for aragon. You must be a transplant!!!!! if not I would be ashamed to tell it;);)
