“...the flag...”, not a specific flag (so origin of labor irrelevant). Then there’s that pesky REST OF THE SENTENCE. “...and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands...”
Kind of like ignoring the rest of the sentence in the contentious part of the second amendment.
But that’s pretty par for the course...
