In 2019 the Governor of Mississippi and many members of the Legislature promised to allow the people of Mississippi a voice in choosing a new flag. However, once elected, the Legislature decided to backtrack on that promise and decided that only they could make that decision for the people of Mississippi. That’s not what voters asked them to do.
Let Mississippi Vote is a group of concerned citizens, taxpayers, and business owners who want to follow through on that promise to allow all the people of Mississippi, not just those well connected in Jackson, to have a voice in choosing our new flag.
We seek in 2021 to have a petition drive that would demand a statewide election for voters to choose among four flags: the original 1894 flag, the Stennis flag, the Mississippi Bicentennial flag, and the adopted 2020 Magnolia flag.
Join us today in our efforts to give the people the vote the politicians promised.
Sign The Petition
Initiative Measure Number 74 seeks to amend the Mississippi Constitution to require the Legislature to provide that the official flag of Mississippi be chosen at the next statewide general election from the following designs: 1894 Mississippi Flag; Bicentennial Flag with State Seal; “New Magnolia/In God We Trust” design from the November 2020 ballot; and “Stennis Flag” with “In God We Trust.” The design receiving the most votes would become the official state flag.
