The Virginia Flaggers are pleased to announce the raising of Danville, Virginia's SECOND Roadside Memorial Battle Flag, in less than a week since Danville City Council voted to remove the Third National Flag from the Confederate Memorial on the grounds of the Sutherlin Mansion, the Last Capitol of the Confederacy.
The Danville Westover Memorial Battle Flag was raised yesterday, on private property leased by the Virginia Flaggers, on what is one of the highest points in the city. She will fly 24/7, and will be seen by thousands of residents, tourists, and, city officials daily.
The folks on City Council have effectively traded ONE 3X5 Third National Flag… on a monument… on the grounds of a museum...for two huge roadside battle flags...SO FAR!
Danville is VERY quickly becoming the Confederate Flag Capital of the Commonwealth... and we are just getting started.
While we were there, we marked the locations for the next THREE flag sites in Danville, and finalized plans for several more.
If you, or anyone you know, is willing to have a Memorial Battle Flag installed on your property, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. You provide the suitable roadside footage...we will provide and install the pole and flag.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to our landowners and all of our friends in Danville who have assisted us in these endeavors…on the ground and behind the scenes...and for the generous gifts from supporters in Danville and across the country that make it all possible!
Lest we forget, August 6, 2015...
...THEY kicked the anthill...not us!
