UNITED STATES CODE
TITLE 36
CHAPTER 10
(or the US Flag Code)
§174. Time and occasions for display
(c) Inclement weather
The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all weather flag is displayed.

So it's damage is the responsibility of the flag owner.

it's a piece of printed cloth for christ sake!

In that mindset, the Constitution is just a piece of paper with ink on it.
Or is it the framework outlining the freedoms and responsibilities that built a nation you have enjoyed all your life.

The flag is piece of cloth. Some bear aligence to other flags, such as the Confederate Flag. The Constitution is a set of ideals that we aspire to. The 'piece of paper' it is written on is irrelevant. It's those ideals that are important.

And the flag is the symbol, or a representation, of those ideals.

That's what the world believes, otherwise why would those who don't like the US burn the US flag? It is a symbol for what the country is.

No. It's a 'pictorial representation' that identifies the USA, not a symbol of what the country is. Because every country in the world adopts a flag to identify them does not mean it it represents what it is. The European Union flag does not symbolize 27 countries who can't agree with each other and are constantly arguing. It is supposed to represent unity. It obviously doesn't. Just another piece of cloth.

This is just one of the places I found this definition. All the other sites had similar wording, this juat happen to be where I stopped. But a flag is definitely not a picture or a painting.

And it is funny that they chose a flag as helpful descriptor when defining the word "Symbol".

let's do the 'democratic' (used loosly) thing, and agree to disagree. That is the beauty of the 1st ammendment.

You are right, it is. But just because you feel like a word should mean something else or you don't like the meaning doesn't change a words definition.
That is why specific words are selected when the 1st Amendment was written, along with all other laws like USC Title 36 CH 10, or the 4th Amendment.
