New York has banned the sale or display of anything considered a “symbol of hate” on public property, including symbols of white supremacy, neo-Nazi ideology, or the battle flag of the Confederacy. On signing the Bill into law Governor Andrew Cuomo said it was necessitated by growing intolerance and hoped to safeguard New Yorkers from the “fear-instilling effects of these abhorrent symbols”. The display of the Confederate flag has also been prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties while the US Navy and the Marines have banned it and voters in Mississippi, whose state flag used to include the Confederate battle emblem, this year also approved changing the state flag to one incorporating a magnolia flower.
