PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) - Aldermen in Pontotoc voted 4-1 Monday to fly the state flag again at City Hall.
The flag came down after an executive order by Mayor Bob Peeples, who said he made the decision because the banner is divisive.
Mississippi's flag has the Confederate stars and bars, which some find offensive while others say recognizes history.
People filled the board meeting room for the board meeting with others being forced outside due to the lack of space.
