The Magnolia State

"Virtute et armis" (By valor and arms)


State Birthday
December 10, 1817

The colours of this tartan were inspired by 'Dark green for the never-ending forests of Pine and evergreen leaves of the Magnolia; Light green for the lustrous leaves of the Great Southern Oaks; Dark blue for the waters of the world famous Mississippi River and the many lakes within the State; Red for the colour of our State Flag and for the blood shed in our historic past; White for the beautiful sands of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the cotton fields of home; Yellow for the heart of the Magnolia, our beautiful State Flower.' This tartan was recognized by the Mississippi State Legislature in 2006.
