does anyone know the reason why tody the officials in america have the stars and stripes pointing downwards.

i never noticed before, until i heard on he coast2coast radio show, alex jones talking about it. i was watching a programme from america yesterday about last years blackout in the north east. they had a official talking from the electrical company and the stars and stripes were pointing downwards.

i was wondering why the flag is being positioned this way, and what does it mean. Alex jones reckoned it was a symbol for a defeated country(to do with the symbols of the occult and secret socities). can i have your views.

Do you mean pointing down or actually upside down? An upside down flag is a distress signal which originated with naval vessels.

I think he mean's the flag angle has been tilted downwards or dipped.It's a mark of respect similar to flying at halfmast.

I hope that its not pointing downwards that means that we are under duress, I hope he means that its at half mast which would be cause of President Reagan

no i am talking about the before reagans death and the stripes are pointing down. i do not have an image but imagine the stars and stripes being turned 90 degrees clockwise. the stripes are pointing down and the stars are in the top right corner.

the people said on the talk show that it a symbol of a defeated country.

Just checked.

"The flag should be held upright and should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental, state, or organizational flags may be dipped."

www.infoplease.com...

Funny I thought I saw them dip 3 flags on the D-Day anniversary in honour of the dead but it could have been the British.

Don't know.

If you see the national colors (our flag) displayed with the stripes running up and down, it is just another way of displaying it. As long as the blue field with the stars is maintained in the upper left corner, it is completely normal.

If he is talking about the flag being displayed upside down, then yes, it is not normal. It is never displayed like that because it does mean that it is a time of distress. I would like to know where exactly anyone saw the flag being displayed like this. It could turn up some useful information. Otherwise if displayed with the stars in the upper-left then all is normal.

The upside down flag is the symbol of A.I.M. (American Indian Movement). Native Americans who belong to this organization often fly the flag upside down, and the flag can be seen in this position at most Indian Reservations.

It sounds to me that he is talking, like Netstorm said, the flag was mounted vertically, not horizontal. Which doesn't mean anything, and as Trechcoat said, is another way of mounting it. Many flags are hung like that in arena's, since they don't have a pole, it is hung from the rafters. However some arenas do hang the flag from its top, to keep in horizontal.

That is incorrect, only because it would be relative to where the onlooker is standing
. The flag is 2 sided.

Alex Jones is full of ballony. Defeated by whom? Military wise we have never lost a war. We lost at the world games in basketball last year, which was down right depressing but not enough to turn the flag upside down

nope what he probably meant was that the america you think you have has gone and the nwo have taken it over, with one day leading to a one world country.

if that is not a description of a defeated country what is.

Well I think first he, and however believes this would have to prove a few things.

1. That there is a NWO.
2. That our elected officials, that change ever 8 years at most are all controlled by the same NWO.
3. That somehow dispite the totoally bi-partizine politics we have here, the NWO is controlling that as well.
4. That he knows what the 'america' we think we have is.
5. What the hell all this has to do with the original observation about the flag being mounted sideways.

It kinda obvious that if he didn't even know that we sometimes mount the flag sideways, that he doesn't know jack and crap about anything else. How and why would you take the rambling of a man that makes a mountian out of a molehill and plays off things that you don't know about, granted because your not american, like how our flag was mounted?
