Tuesday afternoon, the city of Vicksburg raised the new Mississippi flag outside of city hall for the first time.

Voters in Mississippi overwhelmingly approved the new flag design during the Nov. 3 General Election. The previous flag, the last in the nation to carry Confederate symbolism, was retired through the action of the state Legislature in June.
