Why is the Confederate flag so popular?

I live in Wisconsin. I see people who fly the Confederate flag, have a Confederate flag as a bumper sticker, and wear the Confederate flag on their belt buckle! I'm really confused, isn't it a sign of racism and isn't it offensive? I personally find it extremely offensive. Why is it so popular?

    Because it isn't.

    I suppose in Wisconsin people can be given the benefit of the doubt IF THEY'RE FROM ONE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES. If they aren't, there is a 99% chance they are racists. The flag isn't in and of itself racist, though.
