Confederate battle flag is banned in public
spaces, the Marine Corps announced
As well as physical flags, the ban also covers
depictions of it on bumper stickers, clothing,
coffee mugs, and posters
Corps said flag's display 'presents a threat to
our core values, unit cohesion'
In April, Commandant General David Berger
sent memo ordering the ban
Poll from earlier this year found a third of ac-
tive duty troops experienced racism
Nation has been roiled in recent days by po-
lice-involved death of George Floyd
The United States Marine Corps has officially
barred public displays of the Confederate battle
flag from public spaces, including bases and
military installations, following the police-in-
volved death of George Floyd.
'The Confederate battle flag has all too often
been co-opted by violent extremist and racist
groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in
our Corps,' the Marine Corps said in a social
media post Friday.
