Hollywood for many years have insinuated anything Confederate is bad or antagonist. The liberal bias media has portrayed the "Confederate Battle Flag" as racist. This statement is far from being true. In fact, it's a bold face lie.
The state flag of Mississippi has three horizontal stripes of blue. it's also white and red with a square canton. It spans two stripes. They consist of a red background with a blue saltire. It's bordered with white and emblazoned with thirteen five-pointed stars.
The MS state flag is the only remaining U.S. state flag still depicting the Confederate Battle Flag.
"It should stay that way; this historic symbol is not racist."
The Confederate Battle Flag
"The Confederate battle flag, called the "Southern Cross" or the cross of St. Andrew, has been described variously as a proud emblem of Southern heritage. In the past, several Southern states flew the Confederate battle flag along with the U.S. and state flags over their statehouses. The Southern Caucus provides information to promote our southern heritage."
"The Congress of the Confederate States of America (CSA) convened a meeting and decided on this as the first formal flag of the CSA in March of 1861. It was a slight modification of the already existing flag of the USA. It was formally known as the Stars and Bars, and comprised 3 stripes in this order: red, white, red. On the upper left corner was a deep blue square which had a circle of 7 stars in it. A unique moment of a lesson of Confederate flag history was on the battle flag. This is how it got its name. History points to the flag, however, was soon rejected due to some problems that it posed. During the battle in Virginia, between Manassas and Bull Run Creek, this confederate flag history caused a lot of serious confusion. Because it bore a striking resemblance to the flag of the U.S. (stars and stripes), soldiers from the North and the South were often confused about who belonged to which part. This tiny mistake resulted in the death of many soldiers and hence it was decided to alter the design of the flag, a lesson in history.
The history reflects creation of a Confederate flag was one of the first decisions of the new country. The job of designing the flag was given to the new Committee on the Flag and Seal."
