This July 2020 photo shows Kjersten and Greg Offenecker, the owners of a Civil War-era mansion turned bed and breakfast in St. Johns, Mich.   The owners of the bed and breakfast have removed a Norwegian flag outside of their business after being accused of promoting racism from people who think that it is a Confederate flag.  Kjersten and Greg Offenecker, owners of The Nordic Pineapple, hung the flag opposite of the American flag after they moved into the Civil War-era mansion in 2018. The red flag, with a blue cross superimposed on a white cross, is a nod to Kjersten Offenbecker’s grandfather, who was born in Norway.  (Matthew Dae Smith/Lansing State Journal via AP)
