Mississippians embrace new state flag


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Mississippi officially has a new state flag, and people are already buying the new banner at a flag store in Jackson. The owner said they have received dozens of emails and order slips of people wanting to fly the new flag.

Those at A Complete Flag Source also had a hand in creating the final flags that were flown at the Old Capitol building just before the flag was declared the winner. The store has been selling the new flag, since that time. Phone and online orders haven’t stopped either.

Jonathan Brown, a veteran, bought a flag Wednesday morning. He said it was the first thing on his to-do list. Brown said he is proud of what he calls the progressive strides Mississippi has made this election and said this is just the beginning.
