An incorrect banner in the City of Kilgore’s ‘Six flags over Texas’ display was ultimately sorted out this week following a brief but contentious dialogue between a local couple and City Hall. The flag in question is one of three official banners flown by the Confederate States of America, in power here from March 1861 through 1865. For at least several weeks, another flag was flying in its place in the six flags display in front of Kilgore Police Department – the so-called ‘Betsy Ross flag’ is similar in design. It was a mistake, according to city officials. One that needed to be rectified immediately, according to Kiefer and Cody Bounds.
