Stennis Flag

stennis-flag-image-large_1_orig

It’s past time for Mississippi to relegate the Confederate stars and bars to museums and the pages of history to be studied and remembered for its role in the progression and regression of Mississippi’s story. Despite its historical significance and its use as a symbol of some people’s heritage, it has been used as a widely recognized symbol of oppression and hate. It shouldn’t be forgotten but neither should it be an official symbol of Mississippi in the 21st century.

The Stennis Flag pictured above was designed by Lauren Stennis, the granddaughter of the late Sen. John C. Stennis, and is a meaningful symbol that represents the State of Mississippi and all its citizens no matter their race, creed, color, or religion.
