State of Mississippi Flag
- Year First Flown: 2020
- Designed By: Rocky Vaughan
- Meaning: The magnolia blossom is a symbol to represent the state and the hospitality of Mississippians, as well as Mississippi's sense of hope and rebirth. The circle of twenty stars represents Mississippi as the twentieth state of the United States of America and is anchored by the gold five-point star, which stands alone. This star represents our first peoples, the indigenous Native American tribes of the land that would become Mississippi. The color blue in the main field of the flag echoes the blue of the American flag, representing vigilance, justice, and perseverance, while the bands of red represent hardiness and valor. The gold lines and the gold stamen of the New Magnolia are a nod to the rich cultural history of Mississippi, specifically the visual arts, literature, music, and performing arts to originate in the state.
History of the Flag
The Bonnie Blue Flag
The Magnolia Flag
The Stars and Bars
The Confederate Battle Flag
Mississippi joined the United States Union in 1817, but the state did not adopt an official flag for quite some time after that. On January 9th, 1861, at the start of the Civil War, Mississippi seceded from the Union a raised the Bonnie Blue Flag over the capitol building in Jackson. On January 26th of that same year Mississippi adopted its first official state flag, which had a magnolia tree placed in the center and a corner dedicated to a copy of the Bonnie Blue Flag. After the Civil War ended and Mississippi rejoined the union, the Magnolia Flag remained the official flag of Mississippi and would continue to do so until 1894. In a Special Session of 1894, Mississippi Legislature adopted their current flag design. The new flag borrowed design features from the Confederate Stars and Bars flag and the Battle Flag of the Confederate Army. In 2020, the Mississippi state flag was updated to feature a magnolia flower and the phrase "In God We Trust," reflecting Mississippi's heritage and values.
