Group shows off controversial Confederate flag

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) -- The Virginia Flaggers released a photo Thursday of the Confederate flag the group plans to hoist above I-95 later this month.

The group said the 15-by-15 foot flag will be raised on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. at a secret location in Chesterfield County off of I-95.

The group, which is still keeping that location a top-secret because of vandalism fears, began assembling a 50-foot high flagpole along the interstate late last month.

A representative for the county has said they have received complaints, but that there is no ordinance that will prevent the group from flying the flag.
