Mississippi's next state flag could have featured a giant mosquito. 'It’s their state,' designer says.Rosete created the Mosquito Flag as a joke, but this week it took on a life of its own. Lawmakers took a historic vote this year to take down the old state flag, which featured the Confederate battle flag. Rosete and nearly 3,000 Mississippians have since submitted designs for a new state flag, some more serious than others. “I’m a sucker for underdog stories and the Mosquito Flag was definitely the underdog going into the competition," Rosete said. If the process was simply a popular vote for any flag design, Rosete thinks his Mosquito Flag would win.
