Vice Mayor Whelan Flying Flag Upside Down
The Vice Mayor of Flagstaff, Jamie Whelan, recently changed her profile picture on Facebook to display an upside down U.S. Flag with the words “in dire distress” typed beneath.
According the the U.S. Flag Code, title 4, chapter 1, section 8
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
