It’s Disrespectful to Wear ‘Flag Print’ Clothing

Before you make your annual trek to Old Navy to buy your patriotic apparel, you might want to read this. It’s technically not patriotic to wear the flag on your clothes. 

The U.S. Flag Code says you’re not supposed to sell or display anything that has an image of the flag on it for advertising purposes.

The Flag Code isn’t enforceable by law.  There’s no flag police.  But it’s the official guideline for how people are supposed to treat the flag.  You might think you’re being patriotic by wearing it on your shirt, but the Flag Code says it’s disrespectful.

Who knew?  I didn’t.  Use your best judgement.  I think that most Americans would consider a print of the American Flag on a T-shirt patriotic.  Wouldn’t you?  I draw the line at underwear.
