As I understand it (at least from a conversation years ago with an army officer friend), in the British Army they simply cut or tear old flags up until they're just so many pieces of multi-coloured cloth and then use them to clean the rifles. US flagolatory is seen as a bit weird.

What frustrates me is US flag regulations are so widespread that it is hard NOT to know them, be it former military, in the scouts, whatever. Yet so many people (including politicians) do not grasp them. It is not just that burning is illegal, there are also things in the flag code about flying a flag in bad weather or at night too that people ignore.

Safer from a legal perspective to simply not fly (or display) the US flag?

I'm pretty surethere are no laws in the U.S. concerning flags. Just conventions.

Gosh. I'm shocked. I had no idea. I don't think I feel good about this. Thanks for setting me straight, Arkady.
