TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)-   Georgia officials are releasing a new license plate featuring the Confederate battle flag, and it's making a lot of people upset. 

The Sons of Confederate Veterans plate is a new design being offered to drivers who want to celebrate southern heritage. However, opponents of the symbol  see it as a reminder of human slavery and segregation
The new tag comes nearly 12 years after the Confederate battle emblem--  was removed from the Georgia state flag.
