EUREKA SPRINGS, Ark. (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) — An Arkansas cemetery will continue allowing individuals or groups to place Confederate flags on grave markers unless a family member of the deceased objects, despite complaints that the flag is a racist symbol.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Eureka Springs’ cemetery commission approved an amendment earlier this month also requiring anyone wanting to place flags or plaques to get permission from the cemetery superintendent.
