JACKSON, Miss.- The design of the Mississippi state flag will not be addressed this year. It is one of many bills that died in committee before getting an actual debate.
Lawmakers say it’s because they couldn’t decide on a replacement. Suggestions from a whole new design the replace the confederate emblem, to reinstating the former Magnolia Flag were offered.
Another bill also suggested separate-but-equal flags which would allow the state to keep the current flag and also have a second one flown with the image of a magnolia tree on it.
Mississippi is the only state in the Country that still flies a flag with the confederate symbol on it.
