Court Rejects Lawsuit Against Mississippi State Flag’s Confederate Symbolism

The state flag of Mississippi, which incorporates the Confederate battle flag in the top left corner, is displayed with the flags of the other  states and territories in the tunnel connecting the Senate office building and the U.S. Capitol in 2015.

A black Mississippi resident sued the state, saying the use of the Confederate battle flag amounted to state-sanctioned racial discrimination. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has dismissed the suit.
