Ever wonder what your favorite color says about you? How about the town's colors?

Sharon has been proudly maroon and gold for years. But what do those colors say about the city?

According to Kate Smith, a color expert with Sensational Color Pro, colors can say a lot about a person, product, or company. Using Smith's pyschology of colors theory, Sharon Patch applies it to the city's choice of colors for the high school, youth sports and, well, just about everything!

Sharon: Maroon and Gold

Gold/Yellow— Yellow is the color of the Solar Plexus Chakra, also known as Manipura, which is considered a representative of vitality and will. When this chakra is open, it acts to empower a person and help them find their personal strength.

Maroon/Red— Red is recognized as a stimulant, and is considered to be inherently exciting; the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived. 

The conclusion: According to its colors, the Eagles should be able to bring a strong presence to any opponent, while also attracting attention from the other team as well as the crowd.
