The Confederate flag once flew over the State House dome and was a matter of much tension in the state. It was recently moved from the dome to the lawn in front of the State House; a move which hardly lessened the controversy.

Some people view it as a symbol of southern pride and culture, while those opposed to its presence find it offensive because of its association with racism and bigotry.
