Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said Wednesday he takes no issue with the state providing a specialty license tag featuring the Confederate battle flag.When the newest version made national news last week, Deal seemed caught off guard by a question about it. Wednesday he told 11 Alive News he sees no problem with it. “I don’t think that it is something that we should be that concerned about,” Deal said. He pointed out that it is just one of many specialty tags Georgia has offered to various groups over the years. The Georgia tag bearing the Confederate battle flag has been offered to the Sons of Confederate Veterans organization since 2003.
