The Virginia Flaggers, a group that places Confederate Highway Memorial Battle Flags at sites around the commonwealth, is performing site improvements to the flag location on I-95 and has temporarily removed the flag and flag pole. The work is expected to be completed this fall and the flag will return with a re-dedication ceremony. The Flaggers have 25 other flag locations, including 14 in and around Danville where the City Council voted to remove a Third National Confederate Flag from the grounds of the Sutherlin Mansion. The group promises to stand up to efforts to remove Confederate flags.
