Special Report: US Flag Not Dipped During Parade of Nations

That’s right, the American flag was not dipped to the “royal” box during the 2012 Olympics Parade of Nations in London, England.

“Disrespect!” you say? Nonsense. OurĀ Flag Code give us the guidance of not dipping the flag. Other countries are different and that’s fine. America not wiping the ground with Old Glory means we hold our flag in high esteem as the symbol of our nation.

Here is a picture of gold medal-winning fencer, Mariel Zagunis, carrying the American flag from last Friday. Click on the image and you can read about her at Guideposts.
