Ole Miss removes Mississippi state flag from university campus

The University of Mississippi on Monday removed the state flag from its Oxford campus, because the banner contains the Confederate battle emblem, which some see as a painful reminder of slavery and segregation.

Ole Miss’s interim chancellor, Morris Stocks, ordered the flag lowered and said it was being sent to the university’s archives. The action came days after the student senate, the faculty senate and other groups adopted a student-led resolution calling for removal of the banner from campus.

“As Mississippi’s flagship university, we have a deep love and respect for our state,” Stocks said in a statement. “Because the flag remains Mississippi’s official banner, this was a hard decision.

“I understand the flag represents tradition and honor to some. But to others, the flag means that some members of the Ole Miss family are not welcomed or valued.”
