In his 2018 State of the County address, Chairman Oz Nesbitt, Sr. proposed that a Rockdale County flag be approved by the commissioners. This flag would represent the county’s history, pride, and the many opportunities that exist within Rockdale County. Before the year was finished, the Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution for the creation of a Rockdale County flag.
The flag represents Rockdale County as thus:
The Stars: Represent the pioneers that paved the way in this community
The Gold: Represents the shining opportunities and possibilities that lie ahead
The Blue: Represents the unity and the sense of pride we have for Rockdale County
The Burgundy: Represents the rich heritage of all who call Rockdale County home
