Combative: Fans of the rebel banner stuck flags on their vehicles and wore defiant t-shirts, such as the one pictured above. Confederate flags have been taken down across the United States since Confederate enthusiast Dylann Roof massacred nine people in Charleston

Confederate flags have been falling across the United States since the racist church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, sparked a national outcry over the symbol.

But in Tampa Bay, Florida, the battle flag of the rebel South was out in force Friday night at a 'Ride With Pride' event attended by hundreds who wore and flew the controversial symbol.

On pick-up trucks, choppers, t-shirts and even inked onto demonstrators' skin, the distinctive flag was repeated hundreds of times alongside combative slogans like 'try burning this, asshole' and 'come and take it'.
