Furling a flag flap for good

Via Billy

There was never a question whether the Confederate Naval jack was actually allowed in The Citadel's Summerall Chapel, where it has hung for three quarters of a century with 56 other flags. It was hung there with other flags representing the armed conflicts in which the military college's graduates have fought, plus the flags of the 50 states. 

The question answered by the South Carolina attorney general's opinion on Tuesday was whether the flag could be removed despite the protections granted by state Heritage Act. The opinion stated that the flag, like other historic memorials around the state, is protected under the law. So the flag has to stay.
