Wouldn't it be better (i.e. less controversial and yet just as meaningful for those who know what it represents) just to use the Bonnie Blue Flag?


Or is it, or any other flag of the CSA, irredeemably tainted by the CSA and slavery? If there is to be a new South upholding all that was good and repudiating that must be repudiated, one which is composed of blacks and whites and everyone else, maybe a new flag can be created to represent it.

But first enough people need to become interested in relocalization and preserving Southern identity...
