No Special Session To Debate, Again, The State Flag

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant won’t call legislators back to the Capitol to consider removing the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag, even though the Legislative Black Caucus wants Bryant to set a special session after white supremacists marched with the battle flag last weekend in Virginia. Mississippi has the last state flag featuring the Confederate battle emblem, a red field with a blue tilted cross topped with white stars. The governor believes voters should decide the flag design. In a 2001 statewide election voters chose to keep the flag used since 1894.
