They're reversed for a reason. I don't recall the exact reason, but I'm sure someone will post about it soon.

Ah, here's an explanation.

Civilians often wonder why the US Army Flag Patch is reversed. The answer is: not all Army Flag Patches are reversed, but only those worn on the right shoulder. The reason has to do with proper display of the flag.

When flags are displayed on moving vehicles, the blue star field is always displayed towards the front of the vehicle. In this way, the flag appears to be blowing in the wind as the vehicle travels forward (flags are always attached to their flag poles on the blue field side). If the flag were not reversed on the right hand side of the vehicle, the vehicle might appear to be moving backwards (or "retreating").

The next time you visit an airport, notice that the US-flagged aircraft also have a "reverse" flag painted on the right side of the aircraft.

For flag patches worn on uniforms, the same principle applies: the blue star field always faces towards the front, with the red and white stripes behind. Think of the flag, not a patch, but as a loose flag attached to the Soldier's arm like a flag pole. As the Soldier moves forward, the red and white stripes will flow to the back.

Another question we are often asked: Doesn't a red, white, and blue flag on a camouflaged uniform defeat the purpose of camouflage? Yes, it does. Previously the U.S. Code prescribed that military use of the flag will always be red, white, and blue. However, with the updated Army Battle Dress Uniform that was recently unveiled, the flag patch will become a camouflage, muted color.

Reversing the the flag is symbolical of the secret government agenda, is anyone else aware of this?


Do you have any evidence of this? I've never heard of it.

The water mark on the top image says "CORBIS" which is a stock photo house.
What that means is, that you have to pay the photo house for the image in order to be allowed
to use it. Almost all the advertisements you see everywhere come from collections of stock photos.

The weird edges you see around the flags in the images is from over use of the "Sharpen" filter in photoshop, which causes halo's.

The symbols from the senate have a detailed explanation somewhere..I forget where I read about it, but it dates back to Rome I believe and was used by the Nazi's and is on our money.
I forget the name of the things too, but once you find out what they are all about, well, you'll be justifiably paranoid maybe.

So they put it backwards just so it looks as though its blowing backward in the wind in a vehicle? That has to be the stupidest reason ever! Surely it means something else.

The flag hanging downward is hung correctly according to the code for display of the flag. The blue field is to the left, or the flag's own right, and that is correct.



www.ushistory.org...
When the flag is displayed in a manner other than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window it should be displayed in the same way, that is with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street. When festoons, rosettes or drapings are desired, bunting of blue, white and red should be used, but never the flag.

It says Corbis. The photo is owned by Corbis. Nothing subliminal just a simple way for them to prevent image theft.

Normally it means 'distress'


is anyone else aware of this?

You mean the ones on the uniforms? Yes, I've wondered about it myself, not along those lines tho.

Are you serious? Its a damned watermark, a copyright mark.


not forgetting those 2 fasci signs either side are symbols of fascism.?

Hanging the flag like that is not a sign of anything, its an acceptable way of hanging the flag.

The fasces, yes, they are fascists symbols. I'm surprised there's eve a question of this.

Of course, they weren't symbols of fasism until wwii. The ones in the state houses and on money and in lots of other places in lots of other countries are not symbols of mussolini like fascism. Learn what the symbols actually are and you will see that they have nothing to do with fascism.

still doesnt explain why i see bush in front of a big reversed one, live on tv.

Since he doesn't stand in front of reversed flags, there really is no reason to have an explanation for it.


elevated one
the picture of the soldiers appears fake to me...

They are not fake, that is how the patch is worn on military uniforms.

Bangin has seemed to have found the answer for the 'reversed flags'. This vaguely sounds like the reasons I was given but don't clearly recall.

When flags are displayed on moving vehicles, the blue star field is always displayed towards the front of the vehicle. In this way, the flag appears to be blowing in the wind as the vehicle travels forward (flags are always attached to their flag poles on the blue field side). If the flag were not reversed on the right hand side of the vehicle, the vehicle might appear to be moving backwards (or "retreating").

So because the government is giving a somewhat stupid answer it must be false? The government doesn't do anything stupid?
