Happy Black History Month, Georgia residents!
In honor of the occasion, Georgia’s Department of Revenue is offering a newly digitized confederate flag license plate! As reported by a few other news outlets, the confederate flag plate that was released this week, isn’t anything new. It actually just received an upgrade from it’s previous look.
The confederate styled plate is sponsored by the Georgia division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a historical society of male descendants of the American Civil War. Most recently, the society has been responsible for sending out more than 100,000 cds on the topic of “the truth about the Confederate battle flag”.
According to the Department of Revenue the original design (which also included the Confederate flag logo) has been around since the early 2000s and that 439 were issued between 2012 and 2013.
