After weeks of on-again and off-again debate involving the Mississippi state flag, the Tupelo City Council has abandoned a plan to call for a new flag.
The Council had initially expressed support for crafting a resolution that would ask the Mississippi Legislature to change the state’s flag. Instead, Council President Lynn Bryan said on Tuesday it is a bad time to take up the controversial issue with municipal elections looming.
