Mississippi Flag 147 Finalists Round 2 – Mississippi Mondays August 10, 2020

For today’s Mississippi Mondays post, I noticed the Mississippi Flag Commission had narrowed down from almost 3,000 flag submissions to 147. Each of the 9 commissioners chose 25 choices. It took me over an hour and a half using my laptop and two phones to view this link: https://mdah.pic-time.com/-flagcommissionround2/gallery. Even then, the best I could do was get fuzzy images on about two-thirds of the 147 finalists. The commissioners will be narrowing down next to ten finalists, followed by a later reduction to five finalists with one being presented to voters in November. Here’s my last post on the flag commission: Analysis: Mississippi group aims for simple flag design — Mississippi Business Journal August 3, 2020.

I still stand by my comment if you have to include the word Mississippi on the flag, with the exception of it being on the state seal if that’s the final choice submitted to voters, then the flag commissioners have made a major mistake somewhere. I am hopeful they go with one using the state’s official flower, Magnolia – https://statesymbolsusa.org/symbol-official-item/mississippi/state-flower/magnolia. There are some interesting designs in the mix from the unblurry ones I could see. Some finalists don’t make it clear the flag has anything to do with Mississippi. That’s a problem if one of those finalists is chosen to be put on the ballot. Hopefully, it won’t happen, but considering a fair number of the 147 finalists fall in this category it raises the potential for a problem.
