DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - Danville is set to take up a proposal that would banish Confederate flags from city-owned flagpoles.
The City Council is scheduled to consider the ordinance Thursday night. It would allow only the U.S., Virginia, city of Danville and the POW/MIA flag to be flown on city-maintained flagpoles.
The city that briefly was the capital of the Confederacy is the latest to wrestle with the public display of the flag, which some view as a symbol of racial hatred. Others argue it honors their Southern heritage.
