Mount Zion is a city in Carroll County, Georgia, United States. The population was 1,275 at the 2000 census. The story of its new flag and photo is at: georgiaheritagecouncil.org/site2/commentary/bearden-mt-zion-city-flag042007.phtml
"Inspired by the 2002 Trenton, Georgia, City Flag, tonight I went before the Mount Zion City Council and pitched my idea for a City of Mount Zion Flag. It was not all smooth sailing as I hoped, but in the end it passed unanimously. Today, April 10th, 2007 at 7:43pm - Mount Zion is the proud flyers of a modified 1956-2001 / 2007 flag.Valentin Poposki, 17 December 2007
I had begun my proposal by beginning a petition drive. My self-imposed time limit was about one month long, beginning in early March. At first I felt like going door to door but a new job and child care responsibilities removed that thought and I was left with a sporadic 'do it when I can effort.' I wound up with three full pages of signatures by Council meeting tonight at 6PM.
Mount Zion has near 1,500 residents, and is located in Carroll County six miles from Carrollton and eight miles from Bremen. The 1956 flag has been a popular sight here in the city, with three new sightings this year. Mount Zion has always been very accommodating to Southern Heritage by signing Confederate Heritage and History Month Proclamations - finally making perpetual in 2006. They have also flown the First National and Robert E Lee HQ Flag. Finally this January they made 2007 the Year of Lee via Proclamation."
