TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - People with state flags and Confederate flags showed up Saturday in Tupelo to protest the city taking down the state flag outside police headquarters.
Drivers on Front Street could see them across the street diagonally from the police department.
The protest came just days after Mayor Jason Shelton signed an order to have the banner removed.
Last year, the banner was originally replaced with a Mississippi bicentennial flag. However, the state flag returned in late December.
