Subject: Va Flaggers: Lexington Update…Countdown: 4 Days
Question received…"What flag should I bring?"
While all Confederate flags are welcome and appropriate, we suggest you consider carrying one of the flags that was banned from display on City flag stands, which included…
Robert E. Lee’s headquarters flag
Unreconstructed Virginia State Flag
The Second National Flag (Stainless Banner)
The First National Flag (Stars & Bars)
…and, of course, the ANV battle flag, which represents Lee, Jackson, and all the men who served under them.
We will have a good supply of flags available. A minimum 8′ pole is suggested for flagging.
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 services and the parade on Saturday, and flag Saturday afternoon/evening. We welcome all those interested in standing with us to attend Friday, Saturday, or both days.
Meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday at 10:00 a.m, Saturday for details, a complete schedule, and more information.
RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
Tuesday, January 13th: Flagging the VMFA, 200 N. Boulevard, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Friday, January 16 – Saturday, January 17th, 2015: Lee-Jackson Day, Lexington, VA. We will be flagging Lexington and Washington & Lee all day Friday, and flagging and participating in the Lee-Jackson activities scheduled for Saturday, including memorial services for Lee and Jackson, and a parade through town. THIS YEAR NEEDS TO BE OUR BIGGEST SHOWING EVER! MAKE PLANS TO JOIN US… take a stand for Lee and Jackson in the town that has chosen to dishonor their memory and let them know that there are those of us who will not forget what City and W&L officials have done.
