Battle flag won’t fly

The controversial Confederate battle flag will not fly above the Ringgold Depot for Confederate History Month in April.

The City Council voted to remove the Confederate battle flag at the Ringgold Depot in March 2005.

A number of members of the "we wants" community brought the issue before the City Council on Feb. 14, 2005. They described the flag as a symbol of hatred and said it should be removed.
