After over 2,000 designs were submitted for a new Mississippi state flag, the commission has released the possible options for a new state flag.

You can view the flags here.

The commissioners will each choose twenty-five flags by August 7, narrowing more than a thousand entries to a maximum of 225. Commission members will then rank their top ten choices.

The requirements made by the flag commission were the following:

  • Only unique flag design submissions that include the words “In God We Trust” will be considered by the nine-member commission. Flag descriptions will not be considered.
  • The new flag design cannot include the Confederate battle flag.
  • Flag design submissions must adhere to principles of the North American Vexillological Association:
    • Keep It Simple. The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.
    • Use Meaningful Symbolism. The flag’s images, color, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes.
    • Use Two or Three Basic Colors.
    • Be Distinctive or Be Related.

The deadline to submit a design was August 1, and now during the next meeting on August 14, the commissioners will select five flags for final consideration. These five flags will be placed on the MDAH website for public comment. Read more about the process here.
