I cant see why that would be illegal. However, I will say that after living in the south for a year now, that the flag has a completely different meaning down here, than it does up north. All the little redneck idiots up north flying the flag have no idea what it means.

There is a Dodge Ram here in Lansing that flies a confederate flag in the bed of the truck just like that all summer.

It's legal in michigan, as long it's securly fastened down, and it wont fly off. You'd probably still get pulled over for it though

Amen.

And it's not illegal anywhere in the U.S. Perhaps not advisable, but not illegal.

It'd get me fired, which is BULLSHIT, but not arrested.

this kinda contradicts itself but this is what i could find

7g. reads, "When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace."

7c. starts, "No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America..."

Actually it's not illegal to fly another flag higher than the American flag. Just shows poor taste. To fly the Southern Battle Flag higher than the American Flag just says you are a redneck and not a very smart one at that.


The best-known Rebel flag was the Confederate Battle Flag, also known as the "Southern Cross".
