The Southern Cross was never a flag that stood for slavery. It is seen as such because of its association with the confederacy, which at the time was in the processes of getting rid of slavery. In reality, to a lot of people, the Southern Cross is a symbol of southern pride,a symbol of a unit that fought for their home. It is the symbol of an ancestor; black, white, Spanish. Never once was it a symbol of slavery.
