The Southern Cross is the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia in the Civil War. Unfortunately their once proud symbol has now became a symbol of hate and of white supremacists since it was adopted/hijacked by the KKK in the last century.
If you go to VMI (Virginia Military Institute) museums today you see no support for slavery. . . . quite the opposite. But sadly their once proud symbol is too often recognized as belonging those advocating the return of an evil system.
I think it's time to lay the flag to rest at least for a while. After all the Navajo Nation artists no longer use the swastika on their blankets pottery and jewelry to symbolize good luck. Nazi's hijacked that symbol from them.0
