South Carolina Official: Confederate Flag Can Fly Over Citadel

South Carolina Official: Confederate Flag Can Fly Over Citadel

On June 10, South Carolina Solicitor General Robert D. Cook said the Confederate flag “displayed at the Citadel military college” can continue to fly and is protected by the 2000 “Heritage Act.”

The flag is located at the college’s Summerall Chapel. 

According to the Huffington Post, Charleston County Councilman Henry Darby “protested the flag’s location at the chapel entrance and threatened funding cuts.” Darby said, “It’s just still as if they are trying to preserve the Confederacy.”

Solicitor General Cook said the Heritage Act protects “monuments and memorials honoring the gallantry and sacrifice in the state’s various wars.” 

The Confederate flag has flown at the chapel “since 1939.”
