King, NC -- Park visitors in King saw one less flag when they went to Central Park Thursday.
City Manager John Cater said the city received inquiries from the American Civil Liberty Unions and the American United for the Separation of Church and State regarding the Christian flag in the Veterans Memorial.
The groups said the flag violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
Cater said at the advice of the city attorney, the city council voted Wednesday night to take down the Christian flag. They cited the enormous cost associated with fighting the potential lawsuit on the issue.
