An upside down flag is a sign of distress. Its not illegal.
What exactly are you trying to get at?

The viewers say with the stars and blue field in the lower left corner, it looks like an upside down American flag. Published flag etiquette states the stars should always be displayed in the upper left corner. An upside down flag represents an international symbol of extreme distress.
"...it is a stylized flag designed to blend the stars on Senator Obama's shirt with the flag blowing in the wind." -Obama Campaign
I suppose this is just ANOTHER misunderstanding? Either way, its hilarious. Especially when combined with all his other gaffes concerning the flag and country.

If they fought for my freedom (which I believe they have), then why get upset when I (or anyone) exercise the freedom they fought for???
