Next, the confederate flag should not be flown on government property, because it has conflicted history. The confederate army changed the flag 4 times during the war, so the flag flown today is not the original flag. That is not very traditional. The second confederate flag had a large white stripe that went halfway down the middle, which represented white supremacy. The rebel flag still represents white supremacy and racism, because it was the final battle flag used in the southern states’ fight to keep slavery.

Confederate Flag Debate Holds Up Congress Even almost a month later, the removal of a Confederate battle flag from outside a South Carolina Statehouse seems to still be causing trouble in the American Government. After two weeks of arguments between both House parties, the House Republicans finally called for a solution between the two opposing sides, unexpectedly freezing most productivity in the House, yet it still seems that nothing has been resolved. House Democrats used this pause in government to pass amendments to an appropriation bill that then banned the Confederate battle flag from all federal cemeteries, as well as banning them from being sold at all gift shops and concession stands; all this without a debate or a formal “roll-call”
