CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - A rally continues for a 3rd day outside Christiansburg High School after more than 20 students were suspended last week for wearing the Confederate Flag to school.

About a dozen people were seen standing in the rain Monday morning, holding flags and cheering at cars as they drove by. Friday, the Rebelution and Battle Flag Rally for Freedom groups announced they would be rallying outside the school.

This comes after a new policy banning the flag outside in the school parking lots.
