JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber and the Jackson City Council have approved a resolution supporting a new Mississippi State Flag.

The resolution was authored by Councilman Kenneth Stokes, who said the flag is not representative of the state and its people.

Yarber issued an open letter last month, calling on state leaders to use the authority given to them by voters to remove the flag, which incorporates the Confederate battle emblem.
