Flying the US Flag

With the recent issues with flag stomping a T shirt with the flag upside down It got me thinking about how most people fly our flag incorrectly. Recently I saw this ad which is in complete violation with the US Code governing flying the US Flag. So I wrote them a letter.

In accordance with United States Flag code you are disrespecting the flag by
not displaying it correctly as it is draped over the back of a Jeep in your
Memorial day advertisement. I am sure this was an oversight on your part
but if it means anything to you I am sure you will fix this.

U.S. Code
175. Position and manner of display
b) The flag should not be draped over the hood, top, sides, or back of a
vehicle or of a railroad train or a boat. When the flag is displayed on a
motorcar, the staff shall be fixed firmly to the chassis or clamped to the
right fender.

176. Respect for flag
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the
floor, water, or merchandise.
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.
It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always
allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with
the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used
for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for
decoration in general.

Thank you,
