Mississippi currently does not have a state flag.
Its controversial flag (and its second officially) was removed in June 2020 following nationwide Black Lives Matter protests.
Since Georgia changed its flag in 2003, Mississippi was the only U.S. flag to feature the Confederate battle flag, often called “The Southern Cross.”
This version of the flag was adopted February 7, 1894, almost 30 years after the end of the American Civil War.
The people of Mississippi previously voted (with a significant majority) to keep this version of the flag in a referendum on April 17, 2001.
A new design for the Mississippi state flag will be voted on in November 2020.
