NO! I took this photo on the way back from drill team practice at one of my schools. I understand the thinking: “nothing can be higher than the American flag” which is not true. Read here for more info on that. In this picture though, is already a mourning flag and does not get lowered to half-staff. “But it would be higher than the American flag!” I know. That would be the case for the day, in this case Sept. 11th 2012. The American flag would be in the mourning position. It is supposed to be lower on that day and others.

I’ve spoken with someone at the business before and they do not seem to want the information. Oh well.
