Council drops resolution supporting new state flag

After weeks of on-again-off-again debate involving the Mississippi state flag, the City Council has abandoned a plan to urge the adoption of a new flag.

Tupelo City Council President Lynn Bryan has said since early November that the council would consider a formal resolution asking the state legislature to adopt a flag “that represents all people.”

However that proposed resolution was deleted without discussion during a Tuesday meeting from the council’s study agenda.
