If you think that the title is odd, let me explain. I originally called this photo "Another Flag." My original description was: "I know I uploaded a photo of a flag a few days ago, but I really like the photographic challenge of a fluttering flag. I am happy with the way this one has turned out." You can see from the comments below that that title started a small controversy. I did not mean to make any sort of political statement in the title. The reactions did make me realize one thing.
Seeing our flag evokes very strong emotions. No one can dispute that. It is this power that people are attempting to use when they do something with (or to) our flag; whether that be by waving it, burning it, or a politician wrapping himself/herself in it.
The fact that the emotions are different is a tribute to American Democracy and tolerance.
No matter what emotions are sparked by the image, the power to evoke them can't be denied.
I want to let the image speak for itself. I will leave it to others to put meaning to it.
