Trash Yet no one has questioned why the confederate flag is allowed to be Georgia's state flag? Or does no one actually know what the confederate flag looks like? Very sad. It's about time Mississippi didn't abolish slavery into 2013 . The four blue stripes represent the Mississippi, Pearl, Pascagoula, and Tombigbee Rivers (L-R, West to East). The symbols on the blue stripes represent the historical cities on those rivers: Natchez, Jackson, Biloxi, and Columbus, respectively.
