Photos of the classroom at Alexander Hamilton High School in Los Angeles were posted on Twitter
A number of reactions on Twitter revealed dismay at the classroom display.
Some on social media are calling for the teacher who put up the flags and posters to be fired, while others just thought the symbols could just be part of a lesson.
A school statement took a more cautious approach to the purpose of the display while explaining that the paraphernalia has since been removed from the walls.
“Any posting that is determined to be openly and objectively political or contrary to our policies of inclusion and respectful treatment of others will be removed and will be dealt with administratively,” read a statement from LAUSD.
“Nonetheless, all the subjective beliefs that a posting is ‘political’ cannot be accommodated in a district as large and diverse as LA Unified.
The district did not comment on who placed the posters or whether action should be taken against that person.
