Our Thoughts

  • It is important to remember there is only one stead fast documented rule. We should not take an actual American flag, sew it up and create a dress to wear. This would be very disrespectful.
  • Wearing something with the American Flag pattern is in no way offensive, though you should consider you are representing your country when you wear associated patterns.
  • Romper.com sourced information from USflag.org educating the public about the American Flag. They suggest to not use the flag as part of a costume or athletic uniform or for advertising purpose.
  • Use your best judgement and check out sources like USflag.org to get informed!
