A confederate flag is no longer flying above a Marion County government complex.

The flag is one of five "nations" flags to have flown over Florida, and at a memorial in Ocala.

But now the Marion County administrator has replaced the flag with a Marion County flag, something that some people agree with, and some disagree with.

“We live in America and last time I checked it was a democracy so here in Marion County which has what 300,000 people, how can one man decide to take it off a flag pole?” said David Stone with Florida Southern Pride Ride.

“I think it should be removed," said Monaco Benjamin. "What value does it have to us now? That was years ago and so many things have changed.”

A county spokesperson said the county recognizes the historical significance of the flag, but also said the county is aware of the heightened public sentiment -- after the church shooting in South Carolina.
