Part of me likes this and part does not. The creativity for a neighborhood project is great and this is a great photo of the project.

I agree with Cal. No disrespect to the photographer, its a great shot.

I understand the intentions behind such a display. And I think patriotism is a somewhat touchy topic recently. But it always upsets me a bit to see things like this and similar to it, that people don't know the proper respect and etiquette regarding the flag.

First....very nice photo.

It is not a real flag, it seems to be painted on ply wood.

I see no disrespect in what the neighborhood did.

Then again, I do not know the etiquette regarding the flag.

calr and cyancey76, what is the problem with this project?

The main thing that bothers me is the black printing across the front of the flag. It detracts from the flag.

Having said that, someone is probably going to complain about the photos I posted today of the 911 memorial flag exhibit in which victims and emergency personnel names are printed on the flags. I think that is a special case. From about 50 ft or farther, you can't tell anything is printed on the flags. They just look a bit faded.

Anyway, that's all I have to say about that!
