In memory….

kwflag

Only in Key West does the American flag ...have a hint of Hibiscus flower and Palm trees for stars…Oy.

In memory of those who serve…

and served.

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!

Only in KEY WEST. What nerve. It's like stealing a song. That's my flag and I love it the way it is. Such a sign of disrespect, from a bunch of woosies. You got reaction from me didn't ya!!!.
DEATH HAS A HEARTACHE NO ONE CAN HEAL.
LOVE HAS A MEMORY NO ONE CAN STEAL.
I fly my flag and Thank the Dead, for giving us the FREEDOM so the Gay have Rights, Flag burners do their stupid stuff.

Happy Memorial Day to you in the Keys from another southerner in South Florida!

Nice picture, but is that flag really LEGAL? I have heard that it is illegal to portray the American flag in any other forms.

Tim...in America, your first ammendment rights actually protect your right to deface the flag, burn it (as long as you aren't doing it in a dangerous way).

Would I do it? NO. Would I fly that particular tropicaly festooned flag? NOPE. Do I believe in our individual rights and liberties. RESOUNDING Yes.

...and I thank and bow down to the many that have died protecting them. Protecting us.
