    The Chinese Flag Flying Over a California City Hall

    Would you be alarmed by the prospect of the Chinese flag flying high above your local City Hall?
    Residents of San Leandro, California were, it seems, and the plan prompted a mini-firestorm that forced the mayor to intervene.

    Isn't this typical for Communist California. In many places you cannot fly the US Flag because it may be offensive to some.

    Yet, here we have a town in California boldly breaking the US Flag Code and flying a communist flag above the City Hall in honor of Obama's hero Mao Zedong.

    And, apparently San Leandro is not the only city to have done this. There are reports of San Francisco, Oakland, and Alamedia doing the same thing.

    Nah .... Obama is not a Marxist ...... but, can anyone post a story when this kind of event happened under another administration?




    According to the U.S. Flag Code, "No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in position of superior prominence or honor to, or IN PLACE OF, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or an territory or possession thereof."

    The plan was cancelled by the mayor and raising a Communist flag in America was deemed inappropriate. A local Chinese councillor proposed the commemoration of Mao's victory over Chiang Kai-shek on Oct. 1 for the benefit of the local Chinese community but it would send a wrong message to Beijing.

    Yes. I too read that in the article. Do you find that to be an excuse for illegally flying a communist flag over an American city? Do you think such an act could truly somehow benefit Chinese Americans who live in a FREE Country by flying the oppressive communist flag of their homeland?

    What is the excuse of the other cities (San Francisco, Oakland, and Alamedia) who have been reported doing the same thing?

    Actually ..... I believe it is this one! No stars to represent a united independent states .... just Obama's picture to represent one Marxist Federal Government under Obama!

    Yes it is. But I can understand you preferring the swastika given your admiration of ole Aldoph.

    Evidently you didn't read the entire article as usual, or just cherry picked what you wanted to see.

    "Therefore, as long as the Chinese flag didn’t replace the American flag, or fly in a place of superior prominence or honor, it would technically be legal."

    Now, are you going to place limitations of Free Speech if it offends your "sensibilities"?

    In one thread you, I believe, whined about movie clips, and now you fail to do so about cartoon clips.

    Both flags are illegal under the code of flag etiquette.

    You would need to know the history here to understand.

    I was curious about that but the photo provided in one of the links showed only one flag.

    I'm surprised they didn't have the Mexican flag flying with it too.
