Maryland will begin to phase out the state’s Confederate flag license plates beginning this fall.
U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis issued the order on Thursday, lifting a 1997 injunction at Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh’s request, says Reuters.
Frosh issued a statement about the recall:
“I look forward to the day when these plates are no longer on the road,” said Frosh. He said that the flag is a “symbol of hate and division” that does “not have any place in government.”
The recall will go into effect November 17.
