Vendors at Delaware State Fair Ordered to Remove Confederate Flag Products

The Delaware State Fair has ordered vendors to remove all products containing the Confederate flag symbol

At least two Delaware State Fair vendors who had been selling Confederate flags and items adorned with the symbol have been ordered to remove those products from their inventory.

The vendors were ordered to remove the products Monday after the newspaper inquired about the fair's policy, The News Journal of Wilmington reported.

Fair spokesman Danny Aguilar said they've adopted a policy barring their vendors from selling anything that can be found offensive, including the flag.

State Sen. Harris McDowell said he thinks the General Assembly should consider withholding some of the fair's allocated funds if organizers continue to allow Confederate flags to be sold there.

Officials also sent the fair's board of directors a letter requesting that vendors who continue selling the item be barred from returning in the future.
