We have two flags
1. In the Court room an ADMIRALTY/Military Flag, the law of the seas flag, with or without the gold frills- this means the Constitution does not apply. What is seen in public is a Military Flag, because we are under Martial Law,
2. and a Civil (peace time) Flag that I have never seen. As the Federal government acquired more control over the States and their citizens during and after World War II, by 1951 the original Civil Flag had been phased out completely, it’s existence left as an artifact of time in a few old photographs and a rare mention in old books. If you have an old picture with a Civil flag in it, please share it with us.
