They Didn’t Get the Memo

Improper Flag Flying Yesterday, Deborah and I ran over to one of the outlet malls in San Marcos. I couldn’t help noticing that there was a problem with their flags.

As noted here yesterday, September 11 is Patriot Day and the American flag was ordered to half-staff for the day. In Texas, Governor Perry signed the proclamation making it a day for the Texas flag to fly at half-staff, too, but regardless of the Governor’s orders, all other flags should have been lowered because of the U.S. Flag Code, Section 7(c). That section states that no other flags are allowed to fly higher than the American flag, which means—when the American flag is lowered—the others must be, as well.

Apparently, this outlet mall didn’t get the memo from the Governor, because they lowered their U.S. flags, but kept their Texas and corporate flags at full-staff.
