Improper Display Of The American Flag
The temperature dipped to 5 degree’s this brisk Winter morning. My daily jogging in the cemetery was at a fast pace for sure today. My thoughts this morning were of the inauguration of Obama and of course, warmer weather which led me to day-dream about Geneva-On-The-Lake.
I dug up this photo I took last Summer (2012) of the Wet And Wild water slide at Geneva. Notice the flag flying. Notice the blue star field is on the right top. Not to be a stickler of flag etiquette but come on man, the blue star field should always be top left whenever displaying the flag to the public. Vertical or horizontal.
The past several weeks our local veterinarian has been displaying his flag outside his office upside down. Flag etiquette states that flying the flag upside down is a signal of distress when there is immediate extreme danger to life or property. (I believe he is making a political statement using the American flag)
I wonder what would happen if a few military personnel carriers with a full complement surrounded the doctor’s office in response to the upside down flag to offer aid and assistance to Dr. Allen.
I wonder what the military charges for that type of service call?

I commend Amanda Beard, Olympic athlete offering her name and nude body to a good cause, PETA. But it pisses me off when professional photographers and million dollar AD agencies screw up American Flag etiquette.
Check the flag in the background. Yes, force your eyes away from the naked Amanda and take a look at the American Flag. See anything wrong with this picture?
Flag etiquette states that the blue star field should always be in the upper left side when hanging from a wall. You would think Peta would know better.

The picture above is one of the two 25 ton steel beams anchoring the new Freedom Tower at ground zero, where the World trade center buildings resided. Written on the beam are “Freedom Tower” and a rendering of the flag of the United States flies above the words. The Grassy Knoll Institute is appalled by this picture.
I cannot believe that the flag painted on the steel beam, a beam that will forever stand in place for all to see, is displayed incorrectly. When that beam stands erect, the blue star field should be on the left side, on top. Also, the flag should be displayed as flat, not waving as pictured.
I cannot believe a Federal project would allow such a dishonor to the American flag.
