State Flag of Mississippi (1861)

     This flag was designed during the State Secession Convention. The blue field and white star in the canton corner
are based on the "Bonnie Blue Flag", and the magnolia tree is the State Tree of Mississippi. It remained the
official state flag until February 1894.
