The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. We want only to live in peace and prosperity. We believe in the equality of all human beings regardless of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation. We also express concern that the current office of President of the United States is in distress and deserves our immediate attention.
