A reporter from Style Weekly contacted us today about a recent post on our FaceBook page, so we released the following statement, shared now with all:
"The Virginia Flaggers are pleased to present the following photos,
taken during research, development, and testing of drones that were
acquired recently to assist in our heritage defense operations.
In addition to assisting in heritage defense projects, we are excited about the prospects for their use in capturing and recording unique images and video at Confederate Memorial Services, ceremonies, parades, protests, and other events, which would be available to participants and as media releases. We believe that the drones will also be helpful in scouting possible sites for additional Interstate Memorial Confederate Battle Flags, assisting with research on battle fields, and helping to record and research information from previously undiscovered or inaccessible cemeteries.
As we do with any operation, we are carefully testing the units and training operators, while researching all applicable laws and regulations to ensure we operate within the existing guidelines, and to secure the safety of our Flaggers, as well as the protection of citizens and property.
As more testing and further development takes place, we will provide further updates and share additional information.
We hope you enjoyed these incredible photos from the Capital of the Confederacy, and invite you to consider lending your support to our heritage defense efforts.
Who are we? The Virginia Flaggers are citizens of the Commonwealth who have come together to stand AGAINST those who would desecrate our Confederate Monuments and Memorials, and FOR the honor of our Confederate Veterans."
