Confederate flag making a comeback in one southern state

Confederate License PlatesThe South shall rise again – or at least its flag will.

The Confederate battle flag will again be allowed to be displayed on license plates in the state of Georgia, according to WXIA.

The symbol is part of a specialty plate designed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and is being allowed back after a minor redesign.

Dan Coleman, spokesman for the Georgia Sons of Confederate Veterans, told WXIA the flag itself “was something that we couldn’t change,” but they did remove the background flag while keeping the one in the foreground.

“The governor did what he said he would do: Take that backdrop off it. We can live with that,” Coleman added.

Some lawmakers were angry with Republican Gov. Nathan Deal for allowing the flag to appear on the plates at all.

“This governor had a chance to bring people together. And I think he muffed it,” Democrat State Sen. Vincent Fort of Atlanta told WXIA.

The license plate is expected to be available in the next several weeks.
