Home Improvement project #578 is going to be a large flag pole in the front yard. Large enough for two flags. What should I fly under the US Flag? Some ideas: POW/MIA Molon Labe Don't Tread On Me What is your suggestion? Feel free to submit other ideas.

Also much as I might initially enjoy it, I want to avoid negative attention getting flags such as "Death To Ken Jenne."

Nothing. The US Flag says it all.

Roger that, [b]SteyrAUG[/b]. In that case, can't go wrong with POW/MIA.

Am I the only one that thinks it's odd for someone outside of Texas to fly that flag??

Texas is still part of the U. S. I see nothing unusual about it.

Ditto. The "Don't Tread On Me" flag or the Gonzales flag more or less have the same FU quality of a Molon Labe flag & would be easier to find. Just don't use this flag [;D] [img]http://www.pinette.net/chris/flags/gay/gay-glory2.gif[/img]

Gadsden Flag (Don't Treat on Me)

What does the Molon Labe flag look like? I like the idea of what it stands for.
Link Posted: 6/21/2003 2:09:17 PM EDT
I fly the Gadsden (D.T.O.M) & the American flag. During holidays I switch the Gadsden and fly the POW/MIA.

The Bonnie Blue Flag Harry MaCarthy We are a band of brothers and native to the soil, Fighting for the property we gained by honest toil; And when our rights were threatened, the cry rose near and far, "Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!" Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. As long as the Union was faithful to her trust, Like friends and like brothers both kind were we and just; But now, when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar, We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. First gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand, Then came Alabama, who took her by the hand; Next quickly Mississippi, Georgia and Florida, All raised on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Ye men of valor, gather round the banner of the right, Texas and fair Louisiana join us in the fight; Davis, our loved president, and Stephens statesman are, Now rally round the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. And here's to old Virginia, the Old Dominion State, Who with the young Confederacy at length has linked her fate; Impelled by her example, now other states prepare, To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Then cheer, boys, cheer, raise the joyous shout, For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both gone out; And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be given, The single star of the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown to be eleven. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Then here's to our Confederacy, strong are we and brave, Like patriots of old we'll fight our heritage to save; And rather than submit to shame, to die we would prefer, So cheer for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

IIRC, one nation's flag flying over another signifies that the nation whose flag is highest has conquered the other. Maybe you should fly Saddam's flag under the US flag.
