The Mississippi Flag: Gunn Calls for Change in Statement

JACKSON, Miss.–The Mississippi flag, which has the Confederate Stars and Bars as part of its design, should be removed, said Mississippi Speaker of the House Phillip Gunn in a statement Monday night.

“We must always remember our past, but that does not mean we must let it define us. As a Christian, I believe our state’s flag has become a point of offense that needs to be removed. We need to begin having conversations about changing Mississippi’s flag,” read Gunn’s statement.

Mississippians have previously voted to keep the flag, but it has now become a subject of controversy again after South Carolina’s governor called for the removal of the Confederate flad from the state house.
