Mississippi AG Office Messes Up Missisippi Flag Initiative Title

A new initiative seeks to keep the Confederate battle emblem on Mississippi's flag by putting the flag design into the state constitution. WAPT reports:

  • Flag amendment sponsors want the title to refer to the flag that's now in use as "the 1894 flag." It includes the Confederate emblem.
    Instead, a title written by the attorney general's staff refers to the "current" flag.
    Initiative supporter Greg Stewart says legislators might remove the Confederate emblem from the flag before an initiative comes up for a vote, so the term "current" flag would no longer be accurate.
