For now there is one flagpole flying the Stars and Bars Flag and the Georgia Flag 2001.

The middle marker has the Georgia seal on it and it reads: "Confederate Flag Pole", "The flag pole from which the stars and bars proudly flew is the last original flagstaff still standing in Georgia. The stalwart pole was hewn from a longleaf pinetree that grew one mile sw of this city in Early County. It was hauled by a yoke of oxen into Blakey and erected where it now stands by Thomas Williams and others on May 16, 1861."

The Georgia Historical marker gives us much information about Joseph Emerson Brown. He was born April 15,1821 in Picken’s District South Carolina. He grew up in Union County, Georgia. He taught to pay for his education, and while teaching in Canton he read law at night, being admitted to the bar in August, 1845. He graduated from the Yale Law School in 1849; Judge of the Superior Court, Blue Ridge Circuit, in 1855; Governor in 1857, serving during the trying years of the War Between the States until 1865. He was Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court from 1868 to 1870, resigning to become Manager of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. He was President of the Dade Coal Company, and had other large mining interests, and owned several farms. He was elected United States Senator in 1880; then elected for a second term. In Memory of his son Charles McDonald Brown, he established a $50,000 scholarship at the University of Georgia.
Governor Brown died November 30, 1894. His Canton home stood near this marker. After his death his heirs presented this tract to the city for a park, fittingly named Brown Park.
