It's not often this forum becomes a pulpit for what irks me, but one of my pet peeves is seeing flagpoles with no American flags in important holidays like this one, Memmorial Day. I have posted shots of many a pole around Burlingame with no flags displayed. All photos were taken today, May 26, 2014, Memorial Day.
For the record, today, flags are to be displayed at half mast in honor of our military service men and women. Some got it right, for example, The Burlingame Police Department and City Hall. The Fire Dept, had a flag but not at half mast, so did many others. I'll let the half mast thing slide as long as there is a flag displayed.
Here however are some embarrassing empty poles. If you know anyone who can rectify it for the next American holiday. Let them know.
Above are examples showing many public buildings and a few private businesses, in my opinion, there are no excuses, like "we're closed on the holiday" or "we don;t have staff, etc." after all, when do we normally put up the flag? On holidays!
