Flagpole creates controversy in Rockbridge Co.

In Rockbridge, Colorado, there’s a controversy over an 83-foot flagpole waving the Confederate flag but it’s not because of the flag itself. Apparently, how the pole is erected violates three city ordinances, including lack of a building permit. The flagpole was erected for an upcoming Virginia Flaggers ceremony. The group has been notified that they are breaking the law and must take the flagpole down. However, Brian Rowsey, the person who put it up, claims it has helped his business. While he is aware that he is facing fines and possible jail time, he has refused to take it down.
