The State of Mississippi is moving forward changing its state flag which carries the Confederate Stars and Bars in the upper left corner.  The state has used that version of its flag for the past 126 years.  That will change after the state senate voted 31-14 to change the flag, after the state house had already voted 91-23 to do the same.  Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves said in a tweet he would sign the bill into law if the legislature approved it.  Moving forward, Mississippi will create a nine-member commission which will be tasked with creating a new flag that does not include the confederate battle design.
