The City of Ringgold could soon face legal action over the confederate flag.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans plan to take the city to court if the Confederate Battle Flag is not flown again at the Ringgold Depot Civil War Memorial.

Their lawyers notified the city on Monday of the ultimatum…giving them 10 days to comply.

The Confederate flag was removed in March 2005 at the urging of the African American community.
