VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Red, white, and blue is covering much of Valdosta State University Friday, as supporters of the American Flag rally on the campus and the surrounding areas.

Nearly 4,000 flag supporters are scheduled to attend, according to the event's page on Facebook, called "Flags Over VSU."

It's a response to an incident one week earlier when a veteran was arrested after she disrupted a group of students who were walking on an American flag during a protest.

Valdosta State University canceled all classes for the day in anticipation of the large crowds.

In addition, flags on all city buildings will be flown at half-staff.
