The State Flag Commission is now considering fewer than 150 designs as it moves toward choosing a new banner to put on the ballot in November. Commissioners picked their favorites from among almost 3000 designs submitted by the public. The next step is for the nine members to rank the remaining designs to create a top ten which will be narrowed to five at their next meeting on Friday. There's a new gallery posted on the Miss. Department of Archives and History website showing the designs still under consideration.
