Since this flag is a piece of history, many myths and misconceptions surround it. Many statements have been recorded about it, most of which are misleading to the general public and the world as a whole. Here are some common myths that have been said about the American flag.
Government officials designed the flag. Many people believe that this flag was developed by a committee consisting of government officials in 1959 after Hawaii and Alaska became states. The statement is misleading, and it is not supported by facts. One Robert Heft designed the 50-star flag that makes the American flag wallpaper you admire in your phone as a high school project. His teacher was not impressed with the design and gave him an above average grade, which was later reconsidered after the U.S. Congress accepted and recommended its adoption.
If the flag touches the ground, it should be destroyed. By law, the American flag should never touch the ground. It is a common misconception among many people that if it touches the ground, it should be destroyed. There is no truth in this statement. As long as the flag is in good condition, there is no requirement by the law to destroy it just because it touched the ground.
The flag cannot be washed when it gets dirty. This myth applies to many flags around the world, and the U.S. flag is not an exception. People believe that once a flag gets unclean, it should be replaced. This is the reason why it is a common phenomenon to find discolored and soiled flags flying high around the country. What most citizens don't know is that the flag code encourages washing and dry-cleaning flags as long as it is done carefully.
Burning the American flag is illegal. Burning a flag is an extreme behavior, but it is not illegal as many claims. In fact, it is a form of free speech and is protected by law (the first amendment). However, do not run around burning the flag because you are agitated by an issue, it is not morally okay, and it is profoundly unpatriotic.
