The removal of a mural at a school campus in Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood that bears a similarity to the Imperial Japanese Army’s flag has been put on hold, the Los Angeles Unified School District said this week.

“As a result of the extensive input, there is a need to have additional conversation,” Eugene Hernandez, administrator of operations for the school district, wrote in an email to stakeholders on Monday. “Therefore, we will not be taking immediate action on the mural at this time.”
