The myths about the United States Flag
Because this is going to be a long posting I have decided to split it into two, our countries flag and my peoples flag/symbol.
While writing about our countries flag I am talking about only 'Old Glory'.
Not a piece of material red, white and blue with anything on it.
Flag Code found in Senate government.
Title 4 section 36 of the United States Code provides instructions on how to display the flag.
Please note at this time that there are no laws regulating your display.
An exception, Flag protection act of 1989 for certain acts of desecration to the flag.
Other than that there are no fines and no jail time, just guidelines on how to be able to show your respect to our country's symbol?
It is called volunteer respect.
At this time I feel that it is important to say,
"I love our country, her flag and that I served both with pride".
I try to always show my respect for them both.
Federal law relating to display and associated questions 2008.
Found in the United States code in the Flag code section is one of the reason for this posting today.
The flag of our country should be shown to the right of other flags or in front of at a showing.
No flag should be shown flying above this our country flag while in this country, except our navy ship while at sea during a call to church (church pennant).
If another flag, symbol, is shown at the same time, then our countries flag must be shown to the far right of all other flags. It is also extremely important to state at this time that there is only one flag design, all other flags can fly as they wish.
The main problem with our flag comes into play only when someone or a group of people want to make a name for themselves instead of teaching our flag, as just happened in Leesburg Florida not so long ago.
That said, I am also a proud New England native American descendent.
