    You are aware that the swastika is a symbol that has been used since the begining of time in almost every culture.

    Back to the confederate flag, it is an unfortunate fact that it has been and is associated with racism. While slavery was an important factor in the civil war, it wasn't the only one. From a purely constitutional point of view, they probably should have been allowed to leave.

have there ever been any proponents of the use of the confederate flag who have also openly opposed slavery and segregation?

    While it is still a symbol strongly used by racist people (ie the swastika) it's not the sole reason why the symbology is used and exists.
