    For better or worse, the Confederate Flag is the first symbol people think of for the south. You can try to replace that symbol with another image, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    It's also the only real symbol (that I can think of at least) which represents a region of the country. What's the symbol for the Northeast? Southwest?

I don't think any region of the US really groups themselves in such a way as many Southerners do. When most refer to the Northeast or Southwest, they're more or less just talking about the region, not really its inhabitants.

New England had a flag that was used in colonial times, but I don't know when it last had any significance.
