U.S. flag with mistake slips through Quality Control

Star field upside down in US flag Over the school break for the Christmas and New Year holidays, Larry spotted the Texas flag flying upside down at our nearby elementary school (now corrected).

This morning Larry was going through his feed reader looking for news stories about flags, and his eagle eye spotted another unusual flag.

This flag obviously slipped through quality control: the entire star field of blue is sewn into the flag upside down.

Big oops

What bothers me about this flag is that thousand of people have seen it in person, not to mention in news videos and in photographs, and as of January 8, it was still being used.

  1. […] (But do take the time to inspect any new flag before you fly it, and make sure is has the right number of stripes and that the stars are pointing up.) […]
