omg 100% of us have disrespected the flag in 1 of these 6 ways.

I say 100% because if you have never done any of these things you are odd.
Per the Huffington post: On June 14, 1923, or Flag Day, a federal code was put in place that would serve as a guideline for how to handle the American flag. There are several sections in the code about proper national anthem conduct, how to display the flag, and yes, even how to respect the flag.
The code does state that everyone should stand at attention facing the flag during the national anthem, but standing or kneeling isn’t actually covered in the respect portion of the code.
So, here are several things we have all done but we didn’t know they were disrespecting the flag.
1. “The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. ht huffington post So, that american flag button you have on is disrespecting the flag.
2. “The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. ht huffington post If you hold the flag flat then you are disrespecting the flag.
3. “The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature. ht huffington post I have no idea if people do this but it is disrespectful.
4. “It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. ht huffington post So, the flag related swag you get at the party store is against the law.
5. “The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. ht huffington post I think I have seen this on tv before.
6. “No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. ht huffington post. I don’t know if team USA uniforms are disrespecting the flag. I don’t think so.
