STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A Starkville man has the chance to make history in the state of Mississippi.
The state flag commission, tasked with selecting a new state flag for a public vote, recently announced two flags as finalists.
(L-R): The New Magnolia, The Great River Flag
Rocky Vaughan designed one of the two flags, known as the “The New Magnolia” flag.
The other flag is known as the “The Great River Flag” designed by Micah Whitson.
The commission will select a final flag Wednesday, and the commission will present the flag to the governor and state Legislature.
Mississippi voters will then either approve or vote against the flag in November.
WTVA reporter Rhea Thornton spoke with Vaughan Tuesday. Watch her interview in the video above.
