Hold a Competition For A New Rebel Flag
The tradition of bringing a confederate flag along to Cork games to celebrate the counties history as rebels should end.
The flag is used in the USA to celebrate the type of oppression Cork rebels stood against.
Let's use this as an opportunity to let fans get creative and make a new positive flag that is inclusive, anti racist and a huge celebration of Cork's proud history.
Why is this important?
After the attacks in America by racists wielding the confederate flag, it's important that Irish sports fans don't seem to be endorsing the racism long associated with the confederate flag.
But, Cork's history as the rebel county should be celebrated, and this is a great opportunity to do it!
