State Flag Is Gone!

Closing Thought–18Jun20

My city of Gulfport has voted to take down the state flag and replace it with the original flag……

Outside Gulfport City Hall, the Mississippi flag is nowhere to be found, but the Magnolia Flag is. On Tuesday afternoon, Gulfport city leaders decided to take down the flag in a seven-to-zero vote.

Top is old flag— bottom the new flag…called the Magnolia Flag…..

Republican lawmaker proposes a two-flag solution in Mississippi ...

That alone is a big move but I would like for you to read the comments…..

I think it is a disgrace and a dishonor and very offensive to our founding fathers that they would even think of removing the state flag if that is the case they need to remove the Martin Luther King holiday because all he had was a dream at least our founding fathers took action and made our nation what it is this is not for every race it is for the ones that cares nothing for nation that wants to destroy it

That looks like a Christmas tree with bad lights. Or could it be a cotton bush? It also looks like it belongs in a cartoon movie. They need to just leave the flag like it is.

You should read history of confederates/civil war before you comment. And Mr. Choctaw, did you know the Texas Rangers were formed to hunt down and slaughter Mexicans, and Indians?

The confederates should fly a white flag, after all they lost & funky Lee surrendered on 04/09/1865 @ Appomattox.

you have got to be joking city leaders want to promote black heritage but the hell with everyone else’s heritage no I am not a white supremacists I am Choctaw
These are interesting and illustrate a couple of things….one most of the commenters need to return to school and learn some Mississippi history….and two the heritage thing….true cover for a racists that is too cowardly to admit they hate.
 
My choice was the flag called the Bonnie Blue Flag….
 
Bonnie Blue Flag
 
Why this one?
 
It is the flag I fly at my residence.
 
Gulfport is within the boundaries of the short lived Republic of West Florida….In 1810, a small group of Americans living below the thirty-first parallel in Spanish Florida rebelled against Spain and established the Republic of West Florida. The flag adopted by that short-lived republic was a field of blue with one white star, an emblem that would later be heralded in song and verse as The Bonnie Blue Flag. The Republic of West Florida was eventually annexed by the United States and its territory was divided between Mississippi and Louisiana.
 
If interested I have written about the Republic previously….https://lobotero.com/2012/09/22/the-republic-of-west-florida/

  1. I can see why they removed the old flag, but the new one is horrible. Rushed in without thought or planning, by the look of it. I know you don’t watch civil war films, but your personal choice of ‘The Bonnie Blue Flag’ for your state is an interesting one.

    That bue flag with one white star was widely used in the Confederate (rebel) army.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. but at least it’s a cheerful Confederate army flag and not something with spitting mad racists waving it in people’s faces. It’s kinda hard to look threatening with that bright blue field and cute star in the middle.

      Oh boy, and I suck at photoshop. Somebody else needs to get on that immediately.
