This opening story is true. It is also complex. Embedded within it are issues of perceived hostility in the climate because, as noted, some individuals in the community and the institution felt that the flag was symbolic of communism. Also, given the fact that many Vietnamese American refugees fled their country after the Vietnam War ended because they were being persecuted by the communist regime that won the conflict (Hsu, Davies, & Hansen, 2004), many probably associated the flag with oppression.
