Murphy orders Mississippi flag banned from Liberty State Park

TRENTON, NJ – Your property taxes didn’t get any less awful this week, Save Jerseyans. Trenton didn’t do anything about them this week. Didn’t even try. 

On Friday, Governor Phil Murphy did find the time to order the Mississippi state flag banned from the iconic Liberty State Park in Jersey City; flags from every U.S. state are displayed every spring-to-fall as part of an annual tradition.

“New Jersey’s strength is rooted in our diverse communities,” said Murphy in a press release. “The Confederate symbol displayed on the Mississippi state flag is reprehensible and does not reflect our values of inclusivity and equality. I applaud Senator Cunningham for bringing this issue in her district to my attention.”
