The Confederate flag will disappear from merchandise of the popular 1980s television series “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

Warner Bros. announced Tuesday it will no longer sanction the production of any “Dukes of Hazzard” products displaying the controversial emblem.

“Warner Bros. Consumer Products has one licensee producing die-cast replicas and vehicle model kits featuring the General Lee with the Confederate flag on its roof – as it was seen in the TV series,” a spokesman for the company told Vulture on Tuesday evening.

“We have elected to cease the licensing of these product categories,” they added of the General Lee, the show’s iconic orange Dodge Charger with the Stars and Bars on its roof.

The General Lee will still bear the Confederate flag in reruns on CMT or online videos, ABC added.

Multiple states are revisiting their use of the divisive symbol following a mass shooting last week in Charleston, S.C.

Dylann Storm Roof, the alleged gunman, reportedly displayed the Confederate flag on his car’s license plate.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (R), meanwhile, quietly removed the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state’s Capitol building in Montgomery the same morning.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R-) also called for her state’s lawmakers to vote on taking down the flag during an emotional address late Monday afternoon.

“Today, we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it’s time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said at the Statehouse in Columbia.

“We are not going to allow this symbol to divide us any longer,” she added. “The fact that it causes pain to so many is enough to remove it from the Capitol grounds.”

Roof allegedly opened fire on congregants at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston last Wednesday evening.

Nine died in the attack on Emanuel AME Church, a historic African-American congregation. Roof allegedly uttered racial epithets before firing on the incident’s victims.

“The Dukes of Hazzard” orignally aired from 1979 to 1985. It recounted the adventures of “The Duke Boys,” two Georgia brothers who fought police corruption and raced fast cars in the fictional Hazzard County.
