On Saturday, both the House of Representatives and Senate voted to suspend the rules. They have urged legislators to ditch the 126-year-old banner for one that better reflects the diversity of a state with a 38 percent Black population. Three days later, a parade of coaches, including both from universities across the state, including both Lane.

"I know there are many good people who. believe that this flag is a symbol of our Southern pride and heritage", said Mr White.

"We know the design of the MS state flag is being discussed by various stakeholders", Walmart told CNN Business. "If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it".

In a sports-crazy culture, the biggest blow might have happened when college sports leagues said MS could lose postseason events if it continued flying the Confederate-themed flag. It held hearings across the state that grew ugly as people shouted at each other about the flag. Winter said Sunday that removing the Confederate symbol from the banner is "long overdue".

"I would never have thought that I would see the flag come down in my lifetime", said Democratic Senator Barbara Blackmon of Canton, who is African American.

New Mississippi State coach Mike Leach - a man recently hired by the school and previously condemned for a tweet with a meme that contained a noose - said the state's flag wasn't serving its objective because it didn't bring all of its residents together.

Princeton University said Saturday it was removing the name of President Woodrow Wilson from its public policy school and a residential college, calling the former U.S. leader a racist. Many prominent Mississippians expressed their appreciation.

Members of Working Together Mississippi, a religious leadership organisation, listen as Bishop Ronnie C. Crudup, Sr., of the Mid South Diocese of the Fellowship of International Churches, center, calls for the removal of the Confederate battle flag that occupies the canton portion of the current Mississippi state flag.

"I'm delighted by this positive move", Winter continued.

"The bottom line is the image of our state hangs in the balance", Gunn said.

Now attention will turn to the next steps in the process of developing a new state flag. A new flag is not allowed to include a Confederate symbol and must include the words "In God We Trust".

The goal of the bill is to get the new flag design on ballots in November.

That change took place with Sunday's passage of the bill, which Gov. Tate Reeves has vowed to sign. Winter said in his statement.

Two years before that, MS voted overwhelmingly to retain its current flag, hailed by its defenders as a proud symbol of southern heritage and history.
