JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Supporters of Mississippi's state flag are rallying at the State Capitol Tuesday.

The Mississippi Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, The Dixie Alliance, The Magnolia State Heritage Campaign and The Mississippians To Keep The Flag of 1894 are hosting the "High Noon Rally".  

Organizers say they want the state legislature to know that Mississippians want to keep the 1894 flag as the official flag of Mississippi.

"Mississippians understand the heritage and proud traditions of our state that are embodied in the 1894 flag", said Joe Abbott, SCV Heritage Committee Chairman. "We want to make sure the Legislature understands how important this is to us and the voters in Mississippi." 

The rally wraps up at 4:00 p.m.
