The Charleston County district in Charleston, S.C., the city where nine black church members were shot and killed earlier this year, has barred students from displaying emblems with the Confederate flag.

Students may no longer wear clothing, jewelry, or other apparel bearing the image of the Confederate flag, local media report.

Dylann Roof, the white man charged in the slayings of parishioners at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church, had appeared in photos waving the Confederate battle flag. The shooting sparked debate over whether to eliminate school names and mascots tied to the Confederacy.
