MISSISSIPPI STATE FLAG HISTORY
Mississippi joined the United States in 1817 and was the 20th state admitted to the Union. Mississippi lacked a state flag until the 1860s and the least design, created by Edward Scudder, was adopted in 1894.
In 2020 the Mississippi state legislature voted to change the design of the Mississippi state flag as of June 30.
They are in high demand right now as everyone wants a piece of history. We ask that you be patient with your delivery time expectations. This high demand stretches across the country from small mom and pop shops to multi-billion dollar online stores.
There is currently no official flag of Mississippi and a process is presently underway to design a new one.
These American-made flags feature an authentic 1894 design. Due to this historical significance of this flag, it also makes a great collectible.
