Debate Over Plans to Fly 'World's Largest' Confederate Flag Over Busy Tampa Intersection

Breaking News

A giant Confederate battle flag may soon be flying near a Tampa highway intersection.

A Confederate heritage group called the Sons of Confederate Veterans plans to fly the 30-by-50 flag atop a 139-foot pole, the highest the FAA will allow.

The group, which bills its Confederate flag as the "world's largest," expects to have it in place by 2009, The St. Petersburg Times reported.

The group has building permits but still needs $30,000 to complete the project, which will be located on private property at the intersection of Interstates 4 and 75.
