He ignores the fact that countless Americans have died for their flag, that the American flag is a symbol for the pride people hold for their country, he ignores what the flag represents.
The flag of the United States of America consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the “union”) bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows, where rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternate with rows of five stars.
