MACON, Miss. (WCBI) -The Mississippi state flag is coming down in Macon. The Board of Aldermen voted 4 to 1 at Tuesday night’s meeting to remove the flag from city hall and the fire station. Those are the only city buildings that flew the flag.
Macon joins other communities across the state, including Starkville and Columbus, that have already voted to take down the state flag.
The Mississippi flag includes the Confederate battle flag, which some detractors say does not represent everyone.
