Is it "THE FLAG" or a representation of the flag.
This is where all of those proposed Constitutional amendments get bogged down.

Who eats a cupcake on the 4th of July with the little toothpick flag and holds a reverential flag burning ceremony?

As silly as it sounds; it reads as if they should do just that.

§ 3. Use of flag for advertising purposes; mutilation of flag

The words “flag, standard, colors, or ensign”, as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.
Personally speaking I think it would be silly to do that for every cupcake toothpick, t-shirt, car magnet and crepe paper banner but then again most of those things wouldn't exist if more people knew about flag etiquette.

I have to say though, that the jackasses that you see driving around with a shredded, dirty plastic flag flying from the window of their car really need an ass kicking followed by a lecture on the meanng of the word patriotism.

I think all parties involved are completely idiotic. Dressing up in flag attire because it is the anniversary of 911 is silly. I saw so many flags after the incident I was ready to puke. If you didn't hang a flag from your car you hated America blah blah blah. Anyone who knows anything about flag ettiqutte knows hanging a flag from your car is against flag ettiqutee. The clothing and everything else is kind of a gray area, but overdoing it makes you look like an idiot for sure.

Inspite of my opinion on wearing the flag I still don't think the school should have the right to ban it from clothing. Unless the clothing has vulgarity or profanity on it I think the schools should lay off and let the students wear whatever they want.

Ya know where this all started, don't cha? The banning of the stars and bars. The Flag of the Confederate states. Somebody shows up with a Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt, and somebody else gets offended.....Well, we can't just ban one flag, so we ban them all. Being from Kansas, I never really understood the whole "south pride" thing of displaying the Confederate states. It's ok to have southern pride, but maybe have pride in what the south is today, not what it was 150 years ago.

There is too much of this "zero tolerance" crap in school, now. Hell, when I was in grade school, all the cub scouts in my class had pocket knives, with hooks to hang them from your belt loop, for all to see. Now, you get suspended for having a nail clipper.....or asprin if there is a zero tolerance for drugs.

/agree - zero tolerance doesn't work for children or teenagers

+1 on kids wearing whatever the hell they want to school (unless it's truly offensive, i suppose )
