Anyone seen an American flag(or any flag for that matter) used as a top? Or just attached to roll cage? I thought it sounds like a sweet idea! Do you agree? (Obviously not for a practical use, just cool for a sunny day with top off?)
My dad actually told me earlier today that he saw something similar yesterday! Said the flag was just covering windshield to rear roll bar. Sounds pretty neat. If done properly of course and not rained on or damaged or anything.
When I was a kid lots of the old cj's would do this with a rebel flag. I think it would probably flap a lot but you could put your soft top over it when it rained. I have thought about doing this myself with a pirate flag. I don't know where I would find one big enough.
I'm a veteran, served in a combat zone, salute the flag to this day, observe proper flag etiquette, would get royally pissed off if I see anyone disrespecting the flag, etc. but I'd have zero issue with anyone running a shade fly with an American flag image on it like shown in post #7. I wouldn't use an actual flag for that purpose but...

I'll help you. I'm not sure I even like those premade tops in the flag pattern.
A pre made top they are marketing is different than taking an actual flag and zip tying it to your roof. I wouldn't use the pre made one personally though.
People tend to forget that our flag is supposed to be a sacred thing. Something that we cherish and protect. Men and woman have sacrificed life and limb for those colors and too often it's treated as a prop. I'm not saying that was the OP's intention. Just giving my opinion.
I was trying to find a top with the Texas flag. I didn't think about just using a flag, but don't really like that idea. If you want a flag top, I would go with one of the solutions above, it will be much more practical that way.
I have taken a Kansas City Chiefs flag. added a few extra hole rivets and used small bungees to attach it to the bars. it's a sunshade and shows of my fav team. I'd never do that to a US Flag tho. too much respect.
