Mississippi May Become First State With Two Official Flags To End Dispute

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, a Mississippi lawmaker is proposing the state adopt a second flag design in the hopes of finally bringing an end to one of the state's most divisive issues. Earlier this month, Republican Rep. Greg Snowden filed a bill that, if passed, would make Mississippi the only US state with two flags. The current state flag, which would remain untouched, features the symbol of the Confederacy, while the proposed second flag would be taken from an old design which was the state's official flag from 1861 until 1865. While some consider the current flag to be a historical tribute to those who fought and died in the Civil War, others believe it promotes slavery and the systematic oppression of black people.
