Illegal. There is only one time you can legally have a red flag on a motor vehicle in transit in Michigan and this ain't it.

So...really...call me a moron but.......



WHY would you want to fly the confederate battle flag....especially if you live, and have always lived, FAR north of the mason-dixon. I see tons of idiots with it plastered all over their trucks around here. Mostly in bumper/ window sticker form. And I seriously doubt they know what it really means.

OK hombre.... what about an american flag of similar size to the one in the video? I am seriously thinking about mounting one in the back of my jeep for memorial day and the 4th this summer. I work downtown with a shit ton of cops and dont want to get harassed/ ticketed.

I'll take the bait, what does flying a Confederate flag in the South mean? Up North it appears to mean "Look at me, I'm a toothless retard". I hope it has a better meaning in the South.

So, even though it was never actually a flag that represented the CSA, it is a symbol of pride. Is that about right?

But why that flag? Why not one of the actual CSA flags?

This used to be the Ga state flag til 01...



Then because of the negativity of the history of that flag they finally turned the stars and bars into this:

the "stars and bars" represent the right to disagree with the government and authority in general. It does not have to represent racism as many people think. Flying the confederate flag does not make you a racist.

So why not fly the Bonnie Blue Flag, or the First, Second or Third National Flag.

And you do realize that 99.9% of the assfucks flying what they "think" is the confederate flag truly beleive they are racist, right?

the question was asked "what does it mean in the north?". That is what i believe the confederate flag represents. If "I" wanted to display a racist message i would burn crosses in my yard.

This is not the right argument to have on a board dominated by suburban wannabe country boys. Yeah if your flying the confederate flag in yspi. you are probably a dumbass.

spend some time somewhere that doesnt have seven elevens, stoplights or burger king

i fly a pirate flag on my boat, and a reverse flag on the right side of my truck on the side window.
symbolizes always moving forward, and the wars, past present and future.
also "the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward." taken straight from R670-1

WOW..
So I love how people know no understanding about what the Confederate flag means. Everyone thinks its Racism, or Being a redneck.. The confederate flag is a Heritage. And thats the way it will always be. Its nothing to do with racism in my case it has to do with me being from the south. Im proud of where I'm from. I know the history behind the flag. Its heritage. Not hate. Do some research please. I wasn't asking if it was illegal because it was a Rebel flag. I was simply asking if it was illegal to fly any flag behind a vehicle.

People who say shit like being a toothless hillbilly and shit makes me want to fly that mother fucker 30 feet higher....
