Black Lives Matter, then Blue Lives Matter flags to fly over Barre - Vermont Daily

In December, the Black Lives Matter flag will fly over Barre’s City Hall Park. In January, it will be replaced by the Blue Lives Matter flag - a compromise reached by the Barre City Council Tuesday night after contentious discussion.

“A pro-BLM flag supporter on the Council condemned the “hatred” of the pro-police flag, and said there are people in Barre who “cannot see past their hatred.” The Council decided to display 23 different flags in City Hall Park over the next two years – starting with BLM next month, and ending with the flag of the U.S. Navy. The park, across from City Hall, also features the famous “Youth Triumphant” statue, aka the Naked Soldier with a Sword."
