Walt Disney World has reportedly removed a version of the Confederate flag from Epcot’s exhibit on American history.

The Confederacy’s third national flag, or “Blood-Stained Banner,” was among more than 40 displayed from throughout America’s history at Epcot’s “American Adventure” exhibit, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

Disney acknowledged it took the flag down recently but would not comment further, the paper said.

The Confederate flag is facing renewed scrutiny after a white man fatally shot nine black congregants at a Charleston, South Carolina, church.

Towns throughout the South began removing the Confederate flag from public buildings following the June 17 shooting. Major retailers including Amazon, Wal-Mart and Sears have also pulled the flags from stores and online sales.
