The Confederate flag which was a hate symbol of the Civil War era came into use at the time of the American Civil War, from 1861-65, which was triggered by the issue of slavery.

For many Americans and blacks, the flag is a representation of slavery, hatred and white supremacy.

In the Second World War, Southern military units flew the flag. During the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s, the flag became a symbol of segregation and was adopted by the Ku Klux Klan.
