In God We Trust Flag

On November 3, you will have the opportunity to vote for Mississippi’s new flag.

The “In God We Trust” flag is anchored in the center field by a clean and modern Magnolia blossom, a symbol long-used to represent our state and the hospitality of our citizens.

The Magnolia also represents Mississippi’s sense of hope and rebirth, as the Magnolia often blooms more than once and has a long blooming season.


House Bill 1796 established the Commission to Redesign the Mississippi State Flag.

The sole purpose of the commission, according to the bill, is to develop, design, and report to the governor and the legislature its recommendation for the design of the new state flag no later than September 14, 2020.

The commission announced its recommendation of the In God We Trust flag on September 2, 2020.
