Central Minnesota high school students raised their flags Wednesday to protest a school ban on flying them. And they won.

Administrators at Rocori High School, which serves students from Rockville, Cold Spring, and Richmond, initiated the ban at the start of this school year after students last spring flew Patriotic flags on vehicles parked at the school. School officials said the flags were offensive and caused concern among other students.

On Wednesday, high school students protested the ban, which was scheduled to go into effect next week. About 25 vehicles flying American flags were parked in the school lot, school officials said.

By the time school let out on Wednesday, student leaders and school administrators reached a compromise and the ban on flying flags or banners was removed from the student handbook.
