COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) -

Six people have been named to a panel that will come up with a way to display the Confederate flag at a Columbia museum.

State lawmakers removed the flag from the monument in front of the State House in Columbia in July following the shooting of nine people at Emanuel AME church downtown Charleston.

The law that removed the flag also called for a plan to display it at the museum.

Three more members are still to be named to the commission.

The museum could get additional money for the display.
