Symbolically, it is considered important - perhaps because it has been used to represent America itself. As you may know, our whole national anthem is about whether the flag still flies over Ft. McHenry in the War of 1812 after a night of bombardment by the Brits. Symbolically, the country survived just as the flag did that night.Can some of our American posters explain to me why I am seeing lots of tweeting about a dropped flag? Seems like a lot of fuss over nothing.
Is it really that important?
