If you ban it, more people would display it in protest. More rebel organizations would use it. And original versions of the flag would go way way up in black market value.
It's just a flag really and banning it won't erase history. The main reason the Confederate flag is vilified so much is because the Confederacy lost the war, and history books always favor the winners. Truth is the Union was just as racist and the Civil War wasn't about slavery and liberating black people. If it was, why did the civil rights movement happen a solid 100 years after the war? I'm not saying the Confederates were the good guys; I think both sides were awful in their own ways. It's just that history books are way too biased one direction.1
