We asked our readers, “What design is your favorite?”

Here’s what you said:

The Mississippi state flag was the last in the nation containing the Confederate battle emblem until lawmakers officially voted to retire it to a museum July 2020.

The law removing the state flag required the creation of a commission to select a single new design by September for Mississippi voters to approve or reject on the November 2020 ballot.

The Mississippi Flag Commission printed the five final designs on flags and flew them in front of the Old Capitol in downtown Jackson Aug. 25. The commission selected two finalists and will select a single design on Sept. 2 to put before voters on the November ballot.

Mississippi Today asked which flag design our readers prefer. View the results to our survey here:
