Eureka Springs’ cemetery commission will continue allowing individuals or groups to place Confederate flags on grave markers unless a family member of the deceased objects, despite complaints from the local NAACP that the flag is a “racist symbol.”

Susan Tharp, chairman of the commission and acting superintendent of Eureka Springs Cemetery, said she hasn’t heard from anyone about not wanting any flags on the graves of a family member.

The cemetery was established in 1889. There are about 47 Confederate veterans and 97 Union veterans among the 4,600 burials there. So none of those veterans died during the War.

SCV Camp Commander Koltin Massie has been putting Confederate flags on the graves of Confederate veterans in the cemetery. Massie said the flags are about history not white supremacy. “When we put the flags up, we’re doing it solely to honor the service of the veterans,” Massie said. “If they fought for the South, they get a Confederate flag because that’s who they fought for.”
