OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A half American and half Confederate flag was spotted Saturday atop a large cell tower near Millard West High School off of 180th and Q St.
The man responsible for hanging the flag is working on the tower, telling 3 News Now he likes having it up while he works and that it's a representation of culture, not racism.
The employee said he hangs the flag on every cell tower he works on.
Individuals near the tower stated they are employees of Iconic Communications, a telecommunications service provider, working on implementing 5G 2.5 MIMO technology for Sprint.
Once the man saw 3 News Now reporter Ruta Ulcinaite filming, he removed the flag, saying he doesn't want to get fired.
An employee told 3 News Now they are planning on working on the cell tower until Sunday night.
We reached out to Iconic Communications for a statement but have not received a response.
3 News Now reporter Ruta Ulcinaite will have more on the story at 10 p.m.
