State of Mississippi


I designed the magnolia on Mississippi's state flag adopted in 2021.

The magnolia was part of my original flag submission to the state flag board. (The board received almost 3,000 entries.) No other part of my flag design was used. The board modified the center of the flower for printing reasons.

Below are my original flag submission and a closeup of the magnolia.
