The flag is considered by many Americans to be a symbol of slavery and racism.
LThe man who waved the Confederate flag during the storming of the Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump has been arrested in the state of Delaware, the Washington prosecutor said Thursday. The controversial flag is seen by many as a symbol of racism.
The suspect, Kevin S., has been charged with illegally and forcibly entering a government building. The man has appeared waving a Confederate flag in numerous pictures published after the assault. If many supporters of Donald Trump from the southern states regularly display it, this flag is for many Americans a symbol of slavery and racism.
At least five people were killed in the assault on Capitol Hill last week as Congress convened to certify the presidential election results. The violence sparked outrage in the United States and the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump.
