Friday is Flag Day, and according to a new study, Mississippi has one of the most recognizable state flags in the U.S.

According to FreeBets, a betting affiliate site which recently crunched the numbers of a U.S. state flags quiz offered by Sporcle, nearly 67 percent of users recognized Mississippi’s flag – making it the 14th most recognizable state flag. The data came from over 471,000 users who took the quiz.

As for the most recognizable state flag, California took the crown as Texas, Colorado, Washington, and Alaska rounded out the top five. Looking at the other side of the table, it was Idaho’s flag that users found most forgettable, with just 36.5 percent of people able to identify it.

Mississippi recently changed its state flag in 2021 to one that features a white magnolia blossom surrounded by 21 stars and the words, “In God We Trust,” written below. The change became a national headline as lawmakers decided to move away from a 126-year-old flag emblazoned with a Confederate emblem.

The full list of how recognizable every state flag is can be found below.
