Arkansas cemetery allows Confederate flags despite protests

EUREKA SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) – An Arkansas cemetery will continue allowing
individuals or groups to place Confederate flags on grave markers unless a
family member of the deceased objects, despite complaints that the flag is a
racist symbol. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Eureka Springs’
cemetery commission approved an amendment earlier this month also requiring
anyone wanting to place flags or plaques to get permission from the cemetery
superintendent.
