When the Confederates seceded from the Union and started the Civil War in 1861, they declared themselves enemies of the United States of America.
Now, I'm sure you have the right to fly your flag, but I have to wonder why you would and why you don't understand this can upset patriotic people. Do you fly flags of other enemies of the United States?
The Civil War ended in May of 1865. The Confederates lost. Get over it.
