While the colors used in the flag have never been given specific meaning, I like this description of the colors used in the great Seal stated to the Continental Congress in
1777 by Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress -

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."

Long may she wave.

...every American should be running our flag 'upside down' until the scumbag, lying, commie in chief in the white house and all his little bolshevik followers are removed from their offices...we are definitely a country in distress.

...but i hear you easyrider, 2012 can't come soon enough, then we can throw these hypocrite, limousine liberals in a trash bin and once again fly our flag proudly! .

This is the reason politics and religion should be left off the boards. Flying the fly upside down is a disgrace no matter if you like the current leader or not. The flag shouldn't be about protest but a badge of honor for our nation and it's past. This was about flag day not about trashing our leader or past leader. Being a veteran, I would never fly my flag in any way but the correct one no matter what I thought about others or who my current elected leader is. I served my country through a President I liked and another I disliked and serve through both proudly and would solute either as my commander and chief.

While I agree with you from the patriotic point of view, there is a valid reason to fly a flag upside down - it is specifically to signal distress in dire circumstance and request assistance. I also agree with you that flying colors in this manner as a form of protest is not appropriate. As a fellow veteran, there are a number of issues that still go through my head about involvement in war, but at the heart of it, I volunteered to do what I did because I am someone who wanted to serve my country. In that I have no regret.

Fly the colors because you're proud to live under them.

With respect to berniefpfc17 - I agree. Salute the rank, not the man.

Unfortunately, I also agree in principal with weakkneewillie - somehow this country must return to its guiding principles, or we are soon to be in danger of sharing the common experience of CSL (Chinese as a Second Langugage).

Does our constitution not say"Of the people, by the people,for the people."....Not so sure current commander in chief is interested in "for the people" at least most of them!!

I fly mine 24/7/365. I put my life on the line for it, I can honor it by flying it.

I fly mine every day too. Only I bring mine in every night because I have no lights shining on it. Just brought mine in a dusk (plus, I don't trust my neighbors).

I agree with SilverRubi. And Memorial Day should be moved back to its original date of May 30 like Veterans Day was finally moved back to Novemver 11. It has become just another 3-day weekend with a massive advertising blitz to spend money.
