    • Get informed. Carrying the Flag horizontal is against the flag code.

      Folding the flag at a funeral as a comparison is a stretch even for you.

      §8. Respect for flag

      No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
      1. The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
      2. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
      3. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.

      • Very well said.
        We are not now that strength which in old days
        Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
        Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
        To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          What is meant by "horizontal" in the code? The flag as flown is horizontal.

          And, obviously it should not be burned and stompted on by liberal sacks of s**t.

            CARRIED FLAT and it's not being flown it's being carried. A true Trump supporter.

              The key word is CARRY. If you march with that giant flag, that would be carrying. What they do at the pregame ceremonies is not even a real flag, because it would be 1,000 pounds. It is actually 14 separate pieces meant to represent the US Flag. They are just holding it as it is unfurled and spread out. If it was a real flag, it would be a safety concern because it can get caught it the wind. It is no different than forming a US flag with color costumes. They have even done the giant flag at ARMY vs NAVY games.

              When the KKK march with a huge flag carried horizontally flat to the ground, that would be a violation of the flag etiquette. Spreading out a giant representation of the US Flag is NOT CARRYING.

              According to the US Flag Code, all those present have to stand during the National Anthem. Mull on that for a while.

              Here is one of those Giant US Flags sponsored by the US Department of Defense at the 2012 All Star Game:

              • I did one of those at a Cardinals game years ago. What a PITA that was! We had to practice doing it for a whole day then did the game just so some Captain could pad is friggin' resume for promotion...

                • I see no sections, no seams and of course it would be heavy. That DoD is doing it is a disgrace to them and disrespect to the flag.

                      The point of making it look realistic is not to highlight the the connections.

                      Apparently, the DoD, the Pentagon, the Air Force, the Army, then Navy, the Marines, and all the military academies are incapable of interpreting the flag code while YOU can. Do you serious not see something wrong with that scenario. They UNFURL and display a likeness of the flag, they are not CARRYING it.

                      Here is a closer look at an oversized flag. This one is not the kind you see in the football stadiums because those are 300 X 150 feet and weight well over half a ton and there are actually only nine of those in existence and it cost a fortune to rent. This one is a smaller version and you can see that it is sectional and only temporarily linked together with break away ties:

                          • Guys this forum shouldn't be a pissing contest. This forum has really become a political sewerfest. All the ugliness of the pc central has re-spawned. How about passing out some perma-bans? We lost CV due to his not being capable of restraint. Time to do the very same thing to the people who bring hate to this forum every day. Seriously. Otherwise nobody will want to swim through the morass to find a HISTORY thread...

                            Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

                              And I also referred to it as a Giant US Flag. What is your point other than to insist on arguing and making yourself look stupid? It does not matter if it is a real flag or not BECAUSE it is not against the flag code except in your own fantasy. I just threw it in there it is not a real flag after all as we know it as a fun fact.

                              Are you so stubborn that you want to argue that the DoD, the Pentagon, the Army, the Air Force, the Navy, and the Marines cannot interpret the US Flag Code, but you can?

                              Get real. Go bitch about some asshurt athlete breaking the flag code because he is too damn precious to stand up and honor those that have fallen.
