I notice that the BSA, some police officers and private security guards wear the US flag patch on their right shoulders with the blue field to the rear. To me it just looks strange, seems to me that the flag should look as if it were flying which would have the blue field in front.

Thanks for this post Eddie_T. And thanks for the reply NinjaAssassin. I have often wondered about this. Now it makes a little more sense.

NinjaAssassin, That’s weird. nonetheless the flag 4000 years ago was a symbol of group of people and it was meant to prevent inbreeding within tribes of the same race,; not necessarily a national identity. The flag today represent a collective of same minded people, a nation but not a race especially as it relates to our melting pot society. That is almost like an up-side-down cross to me; to reverse the flag from its original position. An affront?

So, it sounds as if only the army thinks of it like I do (and Greyhound buses).

Have your say...
