    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FOR THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI FLAG (NEW MAGNOLIA FLAG)

    The Mississippi state flag was originally adopted in 1894 and remains one of the most controversial flags in the United States. In the canton is the confederate battle flag. Mississippi is the only state to feature the Confederate battle flag so prominently but in 2001 there was a vote and the result was to leave the flag. The remainder of the flag is similar to the stars and bars but the upper stripe is blue. 

    Following the events of the George Floyd incident and the many protests and public pressure, lawmakers gathered votes and started drafting legislation o have the flag changed. This was the first substantial action to change the state flag since the 2001 referendum. The New Magnolia flag was the chosen flag from more than 2000 entries. In the centre of the flag lies a modern magnolia blossom, symbolizing a sense of hope and rebirth as it blooms several times a year and has a long blooming season. The modern look of the flag represents the forward progression of Mississippi. A circle of twenty stars represents Mississippi as the twentieth state of the U.S.A. and is anchored by a gold five-point star which stands alone and represents the first people, indigenous American tribes whose land would eventually become Mississippi. The flag has a main field of blue representing vigilance, justice, perseverance, and the bands of red represent hardiness and valor. The gold represents the gold stamen of the new Magnolia and are a nod to the rich cultural history of the state, especially with regards to the arts, literature and music.
