PARKER, Colo. — A prom picture from Colorado has triggered a controversy because the students are posing with a Confederate flag and holding guns.

The picture was posted to Facebook.

The caption said “the south will rise again.”

They are not doing anything illegal in the photo.

A parent of one of the teens says she’s upset because the group was encouraged to pose with the flag by other parents who were there.

One parent who says the picture was taken at her home does not condone the teens’ decisions.

She says she thinks they just made a big mistake.

Some of the students have posted apologies on social media.
