Edit: Also, I would have to disagree with "the confederate flag is good." While I would never argue for banning anyone from flying it, perception matters. Even if you argue that the symbol has been high-jacked from its original purpose, you are already conceding that the symbol has been high-jacked and the public perception of the symbol, and those that fly it, is one of racism.

You're aware of the public perception and still embrace the symbol, so it's completely reasonable for a stranger to assume that you embrace the associated beliefs.
