  1. The flag looks nice. It reminds me of another attempted flag switch from early 2000’s . I don’t agree with the creators comments . She’s a progressive ( Bullying ) pushing that stuff. Why does anyone need a to tear down one flag to bring on a new one? Just fly it talk it up time & free market will decide what the people want . Never bully others to give up there flag. Flags mean what ever to each Man or Woman and so on. Never mind Official declarations about flags exercise freedom .

    1. The free market is never going to stand up for the rights of minorities. When dealing with a flag like Mississippi’s, that symbolizes to many white supremacy, it’s the thoughts and feelings of minorities that are the crux of the debate.
