Mississippi-Alabama Heritage Flag

Mississippi-Alabama Heritage Flag
"The Missibama Flag"

For 20 years the land that would become the fine state of Alabama was a part of Mississippi Territory. From 1798 unto 1817 all of what became Alabama was under the territorial government of Mississippi.

Usually older states are more east but in this case it is reversed. Mississippi is the big sister of Alabama handling lil'bama's affairs until she came of age.

The design is based on the flag of Mississippi, with the Confederate Battle Flag replaced with a square flag of modern Alabama. This flag can be flown over any part of Alabama since it was once all managed by Mississippi.
