STILLWATER, Okla. – The University of Oklahoma’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon isn’t the only one under fire.

The O’Colly in Stillwater captured a photo that shows a Confederate flag in the window of Oklahoma State University’s SAE house.

“A brother who lives in our house displayed the Confederate flag in his personal room,” OSU SAE President Chris Bringaze told the O’Colly. “Sigma Alpha Epsilon does not endorse the Confederate flag nationally nor do we endorse it as a chapter. In addition, the flag has never been a symbol of our fraternity. My fellow chapter leaders and I have asked the brother to remove the flag from his room.”

The Confederate flag has been considered a controversial symbol since the Civil War.

When NewsChannel 4 crews went to Stillwater to investigate, the flag had been taken down.

OU’s chapter of SAE was shut down after a video that showed fraternity members singing a racist chant went viral.
