I think big ass flags in the back of the truck are stupid... nothing personal but since you wanted our opinion there's mine... I don't care if it's a US flag, Canadian flag, Russian flag... I just think those flags are huge and ugly in the back of a truck... especially a small truck... but lmao that you fly it in Canada.... Shane... take chill pill

i think that weather or not you beleive in racism the general public will think you do. The Size, type and redneck logo of the flag may be taken offensively.

You realize that the swastika and the stars and bars are just military symbols too, right? It's all in how those symbols have been used by "extremist groups" in more recent history that have corrupted their meaning.



I agree with Dixie, if you grew up in the south, where the flag is part of history and heritage, it would be more appropriate. I think the flag you have in particular is an offense, since the stars and bars have been corrupted with the word "redneck" across the bottom. If you want to fly the rebel jack, fly the REAL deal, not some stereotyped knock off. That corruption of the flag takes away all ability to claim you fly it for the true meaning of the confederacy.

the 13 stars represent the thirteen southern states of the American union which left the union and formed the Confederate States of American.
the stars are laid out in the pattern of an X, and the blue bands are put on the thirteen stars to show that the southern states no longer wanted to be a part pf any group which the northern states were a part of. In simpler terms, the message of flag's design is simply this... CROSS US OUT of your Union! The southern states withdrew from the union in a movement called "secession," which led to the Civil War.


If this flag actually represented slavery, hatred, white supremacy, or something worse, as so many people believe it does, then it's design would reflect that by incorporating images of those whom it stood against, and there would be a big X on their images.

i'd have to disagree with you on that one. the swastika is NOT a military symbol. it was the symbol of the National Socialists (aka Nazi) of germany after the First World War. It was used by the SS and SA, both paramilitary groups not actually part of the Reichswehr. it symbolized the struggle for racial purity by the aryan man and nationalism and socialism. the Reichswehr used and still uses the Iron Cross, much like the US Army uses the star and not the US flag to mark its units.
