Update to Mississippi Flag Proposal – June 29, 2020

Again from the Mississippi Business Journal – https://msbusiness.com/2020/06/intense-state-lobbying-efforts-convince-legislators-to-change-the-mississippi-flag/. Update from this post – Mississippi surrenders Confederate symbol from state flag — Mississippi Business Journal – Mississippi Mondays June 29, 2020.


Three alternatives that could be under consideration are the Hospitality Flag, the Seal Flag and the Magnolia Flag. Timothy Mask, president, Maris West & Baker, Jackson, said he doesn’t have a favorite out of the current designs.


The bill gives the authority for three elected officials, Gov. Reeves, Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann and Speaker Philip Gunn, to each appoint three people to a commission that will make a recommendation for the new flag that will replace the flag that has flown in the state for 126 years.


I believe the Hospitality Flag is the Stennis Flag I linked to in the earlier post. Here’s the link to the Stennis Flag website – https://declaremississippi.com/. The Stennis Flag aka the Hospitality Flag is available as a specialty tag if you are a Mississippi resident – https://www.dor.ms.gov/TagsTitles/Pages/License-Plates.aspx.

The Seal Flag would be similar in design to the Missouri flag (red, white, blue stripes)  – https://statesymbolsusa.org/symbol-official-item/missouri/state-flag/flag-missouri, but with the seal of Mississippi instead of the seal of Missouri.

The Magnolia Flag would probably be one of two designs – either https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Mississippi_(1861%E2%80%931865).svg or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Mississippi#/media/File:Flag_of_Mississippi_(1861-1865).svg although a third design could be created by the flag commission.

Or, the flag commission could come up with a new design that has nothing to do with the the above choices. As noted above, the commission will be composed of nine individuals – three members each chosen by the Governor, Lt. Governor, and the Speaker of the House.
