Why do southerners fly the confederate flag?

Besides offending black people, isn't it just a reminder of how the Union whooped confederate behind?

I would think it would be a source of shame.

You largely don't see today's Germans waving the nazi flag do you?
Update: Satan's attorney,

Watch some videos of the white supremicists protesting against the civil rights during the 60s. You will find them waving the confederate flag.

You know who else waves the confederate flag?

The klan.
