    As regards the Online News Poll, as a point of flag history, hanging the US flag upside down is not considered offensive. While the U.S. Flag Code does permit flying the flag with the union down, it specifies only " a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property." This was the practice in the pre-1900's, on the high seas by military and merchant marine vessels alike, but has taken on another connotation in today's political environment.
