U.S. Code

TITLE 4 > CHAPTER 1 >
§ 8. Respect for flag

No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
(e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
(f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
(g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
(h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
(j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
(k) The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Well, she's not technically wearing a flag.
Just a bathing suit with same pattern.

That's always been a bit of a grey area to me.
I agree 100% that wrapping yourself in an ACTUAL flag is in poor taste, but this......I don't know.

Take it easy, Francis. That doesn't look like a violation to me. Now if she had cut a hole in the middle of the banner and draped it over herself (ala Kid Rock @ the Super Bowl last year) then you could make a case.

The stripes are too narrow as compared to the stars on her left....ummmm - side.

This is coming from a guy that gets pissed off seeing subsection (j) violated all the time on football/baseball jerseys and helmets.

Man. Some of you guys are wrapped way too tight.

If I follow the U.S. Code to the letter, every military funeral I've attended would be in violation. Most political canidates would be in jail since they all use the American Flag in there advertising.

Sheesshh. There are bigger problems than a babe in a bathing suit.

I thought it was a shame disrespectful to the flag when they draped one around every athlete that won a medal at the olympics. Some of them went to the interviews with the flags looking like towels around their necks.

It doesn't have to be an "actual" flag. It represents the flag, and is clearly designed to be/look like the flag.

Also, refere to section "i," where it states that the flag should not be used on anything that is "temporary." I doubt she will be wearing that bathing suit for the rest of eternity, and will no doubt toss it in the trash when it's surved her purpose. Call me extremist, I could care less, but I hate seeing people cheapen the meaning and sacrafice of our flag.
