Description of the flag

Flag is yellow with a profile image of Tishomingo in black and white.

Tishomingo is named for Chickasaw Indian Chief Tishomingo. He was an important Chief whose image is today prominent on the flag of the Chickasaw Nation. He signed the Treaty of Pontotoc in 1832. He served with Major-General Anthony Wayne against the Shawnees in the Northwest Territory and received a silver medal from President George Washington. Tishomingo was also the camping ground of General Andrew Jackson on his way to fight the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812. He stayed two weeks to rest his troops and drink the water from what was called “Good Springs” and what would afterwards be called Jackson Springs. The spring still today supplies most of the water for the town. After his service in the military, he retired to become a farmer until white settlers came onto his land. In 1837, a final treaty forced the Chickasaws to move to the Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. Tishomingo died of smallpox on the Trail of Tears on the march to Oklahoma (there is a Tishomingo, Oklahoma, also named for the chief) and is buried in Arkansas somewhere near Little Rock. His son, Iuka, is the namesake of the county seat of Tishomingo County, Mississippi.

The Town of Tishomingo was actually begun by the Tishomingo Township Company, which purchased the land, drew the town map and began to advertise and sell lots. The City was chartered July 6, 1908 by an official act of Mississippi Governor E.F. Noel.
