||Pontotoc Flag Meeting
PONTOTOC, Miss. — A small group gathered in downtwon Pontotoc Saturday morning in support of the current state flag.
This group was lead by Tommy Holloway, who lead prayers and protests in order to gain supporters of the flag.
Holloway was born and raised in Pontotoc.
He is trying to do all he can to save the flag.
Recent National events have put the state flag under the spotlight for having the confederate as part of the design.
"The flag was created in 1892 by our four fathers and I think we should keep it," said supporter, Tommy Holloway. "I don't see anything racist about it, people say it's racist, but I don't see anything racist."
The state flag remains flying at Pontotoc City Hall.
