Confederate flag defence

It has be quite some time since I debated seriously with anyone why the Confederate Battle Flag ought not offend people so and why Southerners have not only a right but a duty to display the flag at least once a year (Confederate Memorial Day).

I began commenting on a guy named Dave Trotter's blog (Democratic Hotspot) reference to a question he presented, 'What does the flag represent'. His response to me was reasoned and polite. Any of my old buddies from RA that wish to attempt to answer the question better than I feel free if you have time. Just be polite and respectful (as we always are). This fellow has not been overtly rude or intransient in his responses.
I must write something on the flag soon.
