Obama Campaign Selling Redesigned American Flag

By Donovan Jackson

Barackobama.com is currently selling a limited edition American flag print to go along with their campaign.

The redesigned flag is on sale for $35. The screen print was designed by Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson, according to the site.

Also, on the website there is another print for sale. This print is a redesigned image of the country with the Obama "O" sitting in the top left corner instead of the 50 stars.

Promoting the new item, Obama's official campaign Twitter account tweeted: "A poster to say there are no red states or blue states, only the United States."

According to the U.S. flag code, an American flag should never bear "any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature."

Additionally, U.S. Flag Code-Title 4, Ch. 1, Sec. 3 prohibits the "Use of flag for advertising purposes."

This isn't the first time that President Obama and American flags have sparked controversy. In fact, his campaign appears to have a real problem understanding U.S. flag code.

TheBlaze previously reported that the Obama campaign left a giant American flag on the ground while they were setting up for an official campaign event at the University of Iowa, a blatant violation of U.S. flag code that states an American flag should never touch the ground.

Further, just last week a Texas school district was forced to remove an American flag that has Obama's face plastered on it. Again, just as in this most recent case, flag code states an American flag should never bear "any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature."
