The Mississippi Economic Commission introduced a blue/white/red
horizontal tri-bar with the Mississippi state seal centered as a Mississippi
bicentennial flag in 2017. It had the words "Established 1817" on the hoist
side of the centered state seal and "2017 Bicentennial" in the white stripe.
Afterward, some people apparently covered or removed the lettering in the
middle white stripe and are now flying the blue/white/red horizontal tri-bar
with just the centered state seal. Thus this modified MEC Bicentennial joins
the list of flags suggested to replace the
current controversial Mississippi State flag.
