Flagging Lexington, January 18- 19, 2013…The Return of the Flaggers
Join the Va Flaggers as we take to the sidewalks and streets of Lexington on the Lee-Jackson State Holiday, Friday, January 18th… and Lee-Jackson Day, Saturday, January 19th- to protest Lexington City Council’s discriminatory flag ban, which was passed to prohibit the display of Confederate Flags from flag standards on City light poles to honor Lee and Jackson during the Holiday.
Plans are to meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday, January 18th at 10:00 a.m. to receive literature, instructions, guidelines, and maps. Lunch on your own (Pack a sandwich or eat OUTSIDE of Lexington). Flag all day. Dinner at 5:30 at the Pink Cadillac (OUTSIDE of Lexington) and back to town for a Confederate Picture show after dark.
Saturday, we will attend the memorial service at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery (meet at Cemetery at 10:00 a.m.) and then march as a unit in the parade (11:15 a.m.), attend the RE Lee Memorial Service at the Lee Chapel (12:00 p.m.) and the SCV Luncheon at the Va Horse Center (1:30).
After the luncheon on Saturday, we will return to the streets and flag until dusk.
ALL Confederates are welcome to join us for the flaggings, walk with us in the parade, or ANY of the activities! All that is required is a Confederate flag, a desire to honor our ancestors, and a smile!
The City of Lexington has once again desecrated the honor and memory of Lee and Jackson, and through them, the memory and honor of ALL of our Confederate dead.
Will you join us in standing for those who are no longer able…and to speak for those who no longer have a voice?

RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
It is easier to find a score of men wise enough to discover the truth than to find one intrepid enough, in the face of opposition, to stand up for it.” – A.A. Hodge
