Group wants to light Confederate flag during Super Bowl week





TAMPA – The massive Confederate flag that flies over the intersection of Interstate 4 and Interstate 75 has been raised again after coming down for repairs.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans took it down to fix wind damage.

They say they hope to have it lit up during Super Bowl week, but they say the lights are not installed yet.

The NFL said whether the flag is up during Super Bowl week or not is a private matter.

"The NFL does not have jurisdiction on what private groups or citizens say on private property," said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.
