JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The state’s flag commission has selected the final five designs to become Mississippi’s next state flag.
The nine-member commission met Tuesday morning and narrowed the choices down from nine to five.
What’s the next step?
The commission will meet again on Tuesday, Aug. 25 and Sept. 2. The panel will select the final flag to submit to the governor and Legislature at the Sept. 2 meeting.
Mississippi voters will either approve or vote against the flag in November.
If the flag doesn’t receive approval, the commission will submit another flag and voters will repeat the process until voters approve the flag.
The Mississippi Department of Archives & History will display the five flags on its website. Open this link.
