At the December 16, 2015 commemoration of the Battle of Monte Pantano, Italy, the German war dead were remembered with the current German national flag, not the WWII German flag.

That is the international standard.

That is further support for an end to the annual flying of the Confederate national flag at the Confederate rest section of the Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison, Wisconsin.

The only flag that should be permitted is the U.S. flag.

Historical background and connections to current events are occasional features of my family history blogs.
