Sec. 3100.053. ORIENTATION ON FLAGPOLE OR FLAGSTAFF. If the state flag is displayed on a flagpole or flagstaff, the white stripe should be at the top of the flag, except as a signal of dire distress in an instance of extreme danger to life or property.
Didn’t these people learn in elementary school, “Smoke over fire?”
(The white goes on TOP.)
I’ll bet they don’t remember the official pledge, either:
Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one and indivisible.
So here’s my question.
How should I let them know? Knock on the door? “Excuse me, but your Texas flag is UPSIDE DOWN?”
Should I call the cops and report that the family on the corner is in dire distress?
Should I storm the back yard and shout, “I’ve got my gun! I’LL SAVE YOU!!!”
Or should I just leave an anonymous note that says, “Hey, you. Fix your damn flag, Texans don’t SHOW distress, damn it!”
Because they’ve been flying it that way for a week and it’s bugging the hell out of me….
Oh good grief.
I feel so dumb. Of COURSE they’re flying it upside down. Of COURSE they know it’s a distress signal.
They must have just figured out who is in the White House!
I guess I’ll leave them and their political protest alone.
