With a flag rug, you can get that big match feeling in your own home every day. Whether it's your country's flag, or the flag of another nation. A national flag rug is perfect for anyone who wants to be reminded of their love of a particular culture or the wonderful experiences they had in a specific country.
A national flag represents the unity, independence and autonomy of a nation. The design of a flag often reflects the character of a nation and its people in connection to historical events. So it's not unusual for this to include religious or political views. National flags are frequently used as positive symbols. Flags can be used to express a deep connection to a nation. Unfortunately, the opposite can also be true, such as when a flag is burned or desecrated. To prevent national flags being used negatively, countries have laws to ensure that flags are treated with respect. For example, there may be a law stating that flags must not touch the ground or stating the times at which a flag can be hoisted. Similarly, countries can determine when a flag needs to be replaced and, in particular, how an old flag can (or must) be disposed of.
The United States of America has a Flag Code, which states that old flags must be burned in a dignified manner. If, on the other hand, the national flag of the United States of America is burned in protest, this constitutes inappropriate behaviour. However, the Supreme Court prohibits individual states from prosecuting an act of provocative flag burning as a criminal offence. Whereas other countries—such as Germany, for example—have completely banned the burning of the national flag. The Argentines have prohibited flags from being washed. For them, this would represent the blood of national heroes being washed away. In Argentina, old flags must be buried with honour.
