Disgraceful use of the American Flag:
I have quite a bit of information on my website detailing how to properly use and dispose of an American flag. There are other websites that have similar information and then there are the government websites that have the full text of the US Flag Code. Having said all that, I’m not going to repeat myself or the other websites. Americans need to learn what the proper use of the flag actually is. Granted, many Americans hold Old Glory dear in their hearts and have the best intentions. However, some flagrantly disregard the Flag Code and think “cute” or “breathtaking” pictures are OK. They are not and I’m calling you out as of now. This will be an ongoing post so if you have any kind of picture to submit, please let me know and I’ll put it up right away. Don’t forget to state who the photographer is or, if the photographer is you and you are showing an improper display, let me know the company.
Our first entry: This is by Julia Carlson Baby Photography. While I love the composition and lighting of the photograph, the Flag Code states that the American flag shall not be used as a receptacle for anything, Mrs’ Carlson. Please take this photo off of your site! And you, Marine (Lt?), are you that unaware? Did your training fail you?
