MSSDAR Centennial 1896 - 1996
MSSDAR Centennial Pin
Chapter member Mrs. Walter W. Ott submitted the winning design in the statewide centennial pin design contest. The pin, 1-1/4 inches in diameter, features Mississippi's state flower, the Magnolia, and is designed in red, white, and blue, State and National DAR colors. The Greek revival architectural style, which is found throughout the state, in both public and private buildings, is also incorporated in the design. The gold laurel wreath encircling the pin suggests the honorable commitment of Mississippi's Society to the patriotic goals and principles of the Daughters of the American Revolution - God, Home, and Country. It also represents the value and worth of each member's contribution over the past one hundred years.
