In a twitter post Thursday, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Republican and Mississippi’s senior senator, lent his support to changing the state flag, the last in the nation to include Confederate symbolism.

“Let’s adopt a new and unifying flag,” Wicker wrote. “Our state needs to make this difficult but necessary change. Put this issue in the rearview mirror and then move on.”

Wicker added an image of a flag with the Mississippi seal, which includes the phrase, “In God We Trust,” added in 2014.
