Only the Stars and Stripes, State Flag, POW/MIA should be flown on U.S. soil. Not Confederate, Mexican, ISIS, or other country.

I think that we should have been educated more about it growing up. I am 22 and I just now found out what the confederate flag was from clicking the learn more button. I think if we were educated more on history regarding subjects of race and battles that took place and one race overthrowing the other, then we could breakdown racial stigmas that are still in this world today. Nothing is wrong with stereotypes but when it determines the way one person treats another, that's when it's not okay. As for the flag, it shouldn't fly in public places. In your home or on your property that you pay

I could care less... it's a stupid piece of cloth. PS bring the Dukes of Hazzard back.

They should be allowed to fly any flag they chose, but no state should chose to fly the Confederate flag, just like no state should display the Nazi swastika on state property.

Why on earth does anyone want to display such an elemental facet of murder, evil, human chatter, poisonous and discriminatory toward a race of people and an ongoing thorn of reminder and bad karma. No.

No, it should be put in a museum as a reminder of our history and not flown ever again.

@95S7SWN from Minnesota answered…1 day

Yes because everybody should be able to believe in what they want and be able to show what they believe.

@95RM6J6 from Washington answered…2 days

No, unless it is in a museum. The Confederate flag is a symbol of racism, separatism and treason.

i feel as if you should have the choice to or not considering if i were to want to hang my american or trump flag and someone said i couldnt id be mad.

@95PH985 from Florida answered…3 days

No, it is a symbol of treason but they should be displayed or used for historical education purposes

If someone wants to fly a racist or hateful flag they have the right to do so. Just expect backlash.

@95NTV3R from Washington answered…4 days

yes and no the confederate flag does have many bad things towards it but it is also a piece of history of how America was made to what it is now

@95NSCWV from Michigan answered…4 days

No, the flag to some means southern pride, but to me, it seems as more of an anti American thing.

@95NS52TIndependent from Georgia answered…4 days

No and yes. The flag represents southern heritage, slavery, and white supremmacy. But the modern age may not really care at all about what the flag represents.

@95N7NCFGreen from Colorado answered…4 days

It is a symbol of racism but the government should not have control over flags

@95LTCBP from Tennessee answered…5 days

it was literal treason that should be enough of a reason to get rid of it

@95LSQWVIndependent from Missouri answered…5 days

Yes, although it symbolizes racism, separatism, and treason, each state should have the right to display any flag they choose

@95KBC45 from California answered…1wk

Yes, no symbol should be banned no matter how racist or offensive.

@95J7Y9WIndependent from Pennsylvania answered…1wk

No, it should only be in a museum pertaining to state or national history.

@95J3FX2 from Utah answered…1wk

No, it is a failed country's flag. However,if it is a part of the state flag or if a private entity wants to display it, that's acceptable

@95GTW46Women’s Equality from Oregon answered…1wk

It can be seen as a sign as rebellion to an older group but it has also been shown to represent racism and segregation

@95GH682 from Virginia answered…1wk

I think yes, because if they are using the flag to represent southern pride then that is fine. However, it cannot be used for the purpose of any type of racism. I believe black people can fly the flag just as much as white people.

@95FBV5VProgressive from West Virginia answered…2wks

Yes, but only it should only be flown at historical monuments where it was originally flown, displayed in museums, or at the graves of Confederate dead.

 @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky  answered…2wks

Yes, but only at historical monuments where it was originally flown

The American swastika

It is a symbol of racism, no state has the right to fly the flag of traitors, but we shouldn't erase history.

If an individual wants to display their racism and/or historical ignorance, they have that right.


The federal gov't should have more authority, but states should have more power.

@95B4WYC from Washington answered…2wks

No, it is a symbol of racism, separatism, and treason and should only be displayed in a Civil War museum

@959P5SB from Washington answered…2wks

It should not be represented as a symbol of racism but be a symbol of what it originally stood for. But because people can not do that it's best to take it down rather than have racial issues be associated with its history.
