Giant Confederate Flag on I-64 Near Charlottesville Flying High As Flaggers Appeal Zoning Board Decision
Our guardians of the flag were busy over the weekend, switching out the flag at the Charlottesville I-64 Spirit of Defiance Memorial Battle Flag Site. While the 30’ x 50’ Flag was undergoing major repairs, a 20’ x 30’ was temporarily raised in its place.
Today, the original 30’ x 50’ flag is back up and waving proudly.
Many of you have asked about her, hearing the press reports that the flag was coming down.
Last week our attorney filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari and Declaratory Judgment with the Circuit Court of Louisa County, after the Louisa County Board of Zoning Appeals narrowly voted to deny our appeal of the Louisa County Zoning Board’s determination that the flag violated their zoning laws.
This is not our first rodeo. We did our homework and believe we should not be in violation, and have the evidence to prove it. We believe that Louisa County officials expected we would not go to the trouble and/or be able to afford the high cost of legal fees for these appeals.
They have underestimated us. Thank you to each and every one whose generous support has helped us to be able to continue this fight.
In the meantime, the flag will continue to fly, to the Glory of God, in honor and memory of our Confederate Dead, and as a reminder to Charlottesville City Council that we do not take their illegal and immoral attempts to tear down our war memorials lightly.
