The City of King, North Carolina, has settled a four-year battle in agreeing to remove a veteran’s memorial that featured a praying soldier and a Christian flag.
After spending $50,000 in legal fees, the city voted 3-2 Tuesday to agree not fly the Christian flag, to end its flag lottery policy, and to remove the statue depicting a soldier kneeling before a cross-shaped marker, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
“The decision to settle this case has been very difficult for the King city council,” the city said in a press release, The Daily Caller reported. “It was not reached until it became clear that the costs of proceeding to trial would greatly exceed the city’s insurance policy limits.”
