WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – When the Philippines is at war, the national flag is displayed upside down — with the red stripe on top and the blue stripe at the bottom. (If flag is hanging vertically, the red stripe is on the left and the blue on the right).
How about the U.S. flag?
Well, the U.S. does not have a separate “war flag.”
But many are wondering whether a new way of displaying the American flag in times of war has been implemented. This, after seeing an inverted U.S. flag flying at half-mast at capitol buildings across the country.
Others have even said that maybe, the U.S. flag should permanently be hoisted upside down since American is always engaged in war in different parts of the world.
No comment as yet from The White House or Pentagon.
