American state is moving to amend its flag after the Floyd incidentMedia reports said that the US Mississippi House of Representatives voted to go ahead with a process that might result in the removal of a Confederate emblem from the state flag, and its governor pledged to pass the bill.

Tate Reeves, the Republican governor of Mississippi, who belongs to the Republican Party, said in a tweet on his Twitter account yesterday, Saturday, that the time has come to end the dispute, after lawmakers reached a dead end several days ago when discussing the state's new flag issue, stressing that he would sign the bill If sent to him.

Reports added that the House voted in favor of the measure with the approval of 85 members and 4 objections, indicating that it would need Senate approval before submitting it to the state governor.

Protests across the United States of America against racial discrimination and police brutality after the death of black American George Floyd, during his detention, have prompted calls for the removal of the Confederate Monument and other symbols associated with slavery in the United States.
