Virginia Flaggers Prepare to Return to Lexington for Lee-Jackson Day Commemorations

For the SEVENTH year, the Va Flaggers will gather in Lexington, Virginia for the Lee-Jackson holiday. Friday, January 18th is the Virginia State Holiday for Lee-Jackson Day, and Saturday, January 19th is officially recognized as Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington. The Virginia Flaggers will flag the town of Lexington for action taken by City Council to ban ALL flags from city light pole flag stands, rather than allow the flags of Lee and Jackson to fly for the week leading up to the State holiday, AND Washington and Lee University for actions taken by former President Ruscio to desecrate the LEE Chapel by removing battle flags from the Lee Mausoleum, their refusal to allow the SCV to hold a Memorial Service in the LEE Chapel, and actions by the current administration to rename buildings with Confederate connections and remove portraits of Lee and Jackson in uniform. 

Join us, as we "take it to the streets" to let the folks in Lexington and Washington & Lee University know that there are still many of us who honor Lee and Jackson and will not go away quietly.

We will flag all day Friday, participate in memorial service at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery and parade on Saturday, and flag Saturday afternoon/evening. We welcome all those interested in standing with us to attend Friday, Saturday, or both days.

Since the City Council of Lexington, Virginia voted to ban ALL flags (except the US, State and non-existent City flag) from flying on city light pole flag stands, rather than allow the flags of Lee and Jackson to fly for several days leading up to the Virginia State Lee-Jackson Holiday, the Virginia Flaggers have called for a FULL BOYCOTT of Lexington, Virginia. When we gather for the upcoming holiday and events, we ask that all participants make their arrangements for lodging, eating, and entertainment OUTSIDE of the town limits. This map provides an outline of the town boundaries. Please join us in making sure that the town that has turned its back on Lee and Jackson and its rich Confederate heritage, does not profit from what could have been a windfall of revenue to the struggling town. Honor Lee and Jackson...BOYCOTT LEXINGTON!

30' x 50' Battle Flag Returns to Virginia's Largest Confederate Flag Site in Danville

Just in time for Holiday travelers! The Va Flaggers are thrilled to announce that a 30’x50’ Army of Tennessee Battle Flag is back up and flying on our 120’ pole at the Gen William Lewis Cabell Memorial Battle Flag site on the 29 Bypass in Danville, Va.

The flag has been repaired and replaces a 20’x30’ that flew in its place during the process.

Many thanks to Robert McDaniel and the 2nd Battalion, Company A, VA Mechanized Cavalry for sponsoring this flag site and taking care of the maintenance and flag repair/replacement, to
 each and every one of you who contacted us to inquire about the flag when the damage appeared, to those who asked about it while it was down, and  to all of you whose generous contributions make the repairs to existing flags and purchase of new ones for our 27 flag sites across the Commonwealth possible .

God bless you all and God save the South!
They took down one tiny Third National on the grounds of the Last Capitol of the Confederacy in Danville, Va, and now 16 massive Confederate flags have been raised in that town, including this Third National at one of the busiest intersections, now lit for glorious 24 hour viewing!
Many thanks to Tommy Goddard of Sky High Poles and his crew for all of their hard work and dedication to our Cause in Danville.
We have only just begun to fight...

All Glory to God.
All honor to the Confederate soldier.
It's not about us.

Is Now Really the Right Time to Raise Your Battle Flag...?

In a group whose purpose it is to save our monuments, I was just told that those of us who carry flags cause just as much damage to our Cause as the Black Lives Matter agitators.

*Deep breath, ...count to 10...

Folks. It's not about the flag. It's not about slavery. It's not about racism. It's not about the War Between the States.

It's about the leftist goal of eliminating every trace of our Godly heritage and making us forget there was a time when we stood up to tyranny. They started with the flag because it was an easy target and they knew our people would cave (see Nikki Haley) because they have conditioned us to keep our mouths shut. There is no appeasement. Compromise leads to more demands. Facts, truth, and reason do not matter. Education is useless for most of these people.

All that's left for us to do is stand, fight, and...with the same defiance of our ancestors...RAISE YOUR BATTLE FLAG!

We are looking forward to 2019 with renewed hope, strength, and determination.  We hope you will join us in the fight.

All glory to God.
All honor to the Confederate soldier.
It's not about us.
