    Heritage not Hate

    To those of you who think the confederate flag is just a racist symbol.
    The KKK ruined the flag.

    Controversy of the Confederate Flag
    In modern times many Southerners still use the flag as they believe it represents the distinct development and uniqueness of the Southern culture. They believe its a part of their right to free speech and expression. Though the collateral damage the Confederate flag being displayed is that some feel disrespected and targeted racially. Symbols of the Confederacy are still in use and have become an issue of dispute that crops up every now and then across the United States. In the 1990s many Southern state legislatures attempted to allow the use of the Confederate flag as a part of its political and civic heritage as they consider it a part of the American history and do not view the flag as a representation of racism or any form of superiority.

    Confederate Flag Meaning in Abroad
    You would be surprised to know that the Confederate flag is often used as a symbol for culture and to display love for one's country. In Canada it is often used in Alberta. While in UK is represents the love for the American way of life, country music and line dancing. In Sweden the flag is the insignia of the 'Raggare' people who love to drive American auto mobiles and often follow their culture and lifestyle which is inspired from the 1940's to 1960's generation.

    The Confederate flag meaning has been interpreted differently by different communities as well as different countries but the fact remains that it is still in use because it invokes strong emotional feelings. Whether positive or not may not be the defining issue. Many believe that the flag of Alabama, the recently changed flag of Georgia and the present flag of Mississippi are influenced by the Confederate flag. The flag of Mississippi represents the actual Confederate X on it, along with the blue, white and red stripes as the background. Though this flag was the choice of the citizens of Mississippi and the United States ratified their unified decision.

    yes its a c/p job but so your not calling me a racist or any others who fly the flag .
