Confederate Battle Flag Plate Allowed

Posted September 14, 1997

— The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles won't appeal a judge's decision allowing a license plate bearing the Confederate battle flag.

The D-M-V will comply with a judge's order to issue the special plates with the emblem of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

The case wound up in court after the DMV turned down the group's request.
