Deal weighs in on license plate with confederate flag

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Gov. Nathan Deal is weighing in on the new Confederate license plate that is causing controversy.

Deal recognizes there's a slight difference in the design, but that the flag is historical.

"I think it is an acknowledgement of the history of our state and our culture. It's been there. It's just a little bit different format," said Deal.

The plate has always had the Confederate flag in the square logo of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

But now you can see a faint image of the stars and bars across the entire tag in the background.
