Democratic Convention

Mississippi flag taken down at Democratic convention

The Mississippi state flag will not fly at the Democratic National Convention.

It was removed from its posts inside and outside the arena, as the Mississippi Democratic delegation and protesters agreed that it was offensive. The flag features the stars and bars symbol of the Confederacy in the upper left corner of the rectangular flag that also has three stripes — one red, one white and one blue.

Vallena Greer, a Democratic delegate from Mississippi, told the Washington Examiner she saw the flag on the Mississippi delegation's post inside the convention hall and immediately took it down.

"I just lost it. I snatched it, I threw it under the seat," Greer said. "I didn't want to see it, nobody else from Mississippi wanted to see that."
