Students at Franklin County High School in Virginia rallied together on Feb. 4 to display American flags on their vehicles after an administrator told one of the boys that he couldn’t fly the American flag from his truck.
The administrator at the Virginia school reportedly told the boy that he could no longer fly Old Glory on his trucks because it was potentially “offensive” and “disruptive.”
“My son called me from school saying that he saw an administrator around his truck and is now being called to the office,” the mother of one of the students told BTW21.
Then the other students all decided to fly their flags on the back of their trucks the very next day to show support to the boy and love for their country.
Several local residents posted photos of the caravan driving through town with each vehicle rocking that red, white, and blue.
According to BTW21, the school Principal Jon Crutchfield called the boy’s mother that evening and told her it was a big misunderstanding that should have never gone this far.
“He has apologized to the boys and told them that it is not against the rules to fly their flag on their truck,” the mother said.
The students were allowed to fly their flags again after the situation escalated to this level.
