Members of the State Flag Commission are now reviewing over 2,000 flag design submissions that were sent to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. While they select their top 25 in Round One, MDAH has made the submissions available to be viewed by the public.
Members of the Commission have until August 7 to make those top 25 selections. They will then narrow it down to the top 10, top 5 and finally the number one design selection.
At this time, the public is not able to comment on any submissions but that option will be available once the Commission selects the top 5.
The new design must be offered up by September 14 in order to be placed on the November 2020 ballot. The public will then have a chance to vote on the flag selected by the Commission. If a two-thirds vote on that design is reached, the new design will be accepted, if not the Commission will go back to the drawing board.
