Mississippi is getting a new flag. The Commission to Redesign the Mississippi State Flag will select a new design from submitted entries by September, and the state’s citizens will have a referendum to accept or reject the new flag during the November election. The deadline for submissions was August first, and now those hundreds of submission are in a gallery for public view. The only rules are that the design must contain the words “In God We Trust,” and that no Confederate flags are used. You can “♥” flags, but that probably won’t have any sway over the commission. Most of the submissions are straightforward, many with magnolia blossoms, but the few posted here show that there is a wide range of inspirations. -via Metafilter
