Your attitude is just as bad as theirs'. It's not a competition for supremacy. So many of these 'progressives' seem to want to make it that way. It's not about being equal, it's about having an advantage.

Obviously you've never been to Texas.

They fly that flag everywhere, don't they?


But I bet if you sneaked up one night and substituted the Puerto Rico flag or even the Cuba flag, no one would notice...

It is pretty ridiculous the Mississippi flag hung around this long.

They actually stole the concept from Chile...



But you'd be wrong.

The lone star flag is everywhere down there and they are always bloviating about how it's the most recognizable flag, doesn't need "Texas" to be spelled out, blah blah blah.

They also in many places have the Texas flag staffed at the same level as the national flag instead of below it like normal states do. You see them flown on two different staffs as often as you see the Texas flag flown below the national flag.

Here is what Bum Phillips (famous Texas football coach said in a story bloviating about "What it means to be a Texan"...

Quote:
When was the last time you went to a person's house in New York and you saw a big map of New York on their wall? That was never. When did you ever drive through Oklahoma and see their flag waving on four businesses in a row? Can you even tell me what the flag in Louisiana looks like? I damned sure can't. But I bet my ass you can't drive 20 minutes from your house and not see a business that has a big Texas flag as part of its logo. If you haven't done business with someone called AllTex something or Lone Star somebody or other, or Texas such and such, you hadn't lived here for too long.
If you want to argue with Bum Phillips feel free. LOL. Frankly I can't live down there. I've tried three times and one of the reasons why is because of that flag being everywhere.

You see this a lot down there...

I wish Mississippi would put the Magnolia where the battle flag was. It would be a simple change, it would be representative of the state and it would be something I think everybody could support.

In fact they use a factory decal with this on some of their pickup trucks. Ford, chevy.... all of them have some sort of "Texas addition" with the flag superimposed on something.

Here is just one example...

You could always bring back the "Bonnie Blue Flag". Nobody today associates it with the Confederacy, especially the clueless teens and twenty-somethings that comprise a lot of the protesters. It also closely resembles the national flag of Somalia, which is kinda/sorta BLM:

Some counties are refusing to remove it from their courthouses.

People have come to expect flags to flutter during parades, Mississippi could start a trend in designating a state wind sock or pinwheel.

I really like the Magnolia flag concept - apparently it was the unofficial state flag at some point in the past. It's great because it also pays homage to the Republic of West Florida that encompassed the MS coast via the Bonnie Blue single star.
