It seems to me that the issue is the same one surrounding the
inclusion of the Confederate battle flag in the state flags of South
Carolina, Georgia, and Mississippi, or the use of that flag or the
Li'l Reb mascot for high schools throughout the South.
A minor point, which has no bearing upon the validity of your position: the
issue in South Carolina has to do with whether the Confederate battle flag
should continue to fly, with the US and state flags, over the SC Capitol. The
South Carolina flag, fortunately, has not been subjected to the fate of its
Georgia counterpart (I am not familiar with the Mississippi flag). It is a
strikingly simple and beautiful banner. I suspect the Georgia flag was, too, in
in its day.
