Mississippi Flag Commission Ballot Recommendation – September 3, 2020

I noticed last night that several media outlets reported the Magnolia Flag, now known as In God We Trust Flag, had been submitted to be on the November ballot: https://ballotpedia.org/Mississippi_State_Flag_Referendum_(2020).

What flag will Mississippi vote on?

At the election on November 3, 2020, Mississippi voters will be shown a colored picture of the new proposed state flag, named the In God We Trust Flag. Residents may vote either yes to adopt the new flag or no to oppose adopting the new state flag. If the new proposed flag is rejected by voters, the Commission to Redesign the Mississippi State Flag will reconvene, design another flag, and allow voters to approve or reject it at a special election in November 2021. The commission unanimously selected the final flag on September 2, 2020. The flag is shown below:[1]

Once the results are in for the ballot, I will do a follow-up post.
