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.
