Regarding the feature article on the front page of the Sunday, June 10, Northwest section, I wish to take umbrage to the flag shown carried in the Pride Parade being referred to as a rainbow American flag. You may call it a flag. You may call it a rainbow. But, you may not call it a rainbow American flag.
The American flag has 13 horizontal alternating stripes; seven red and six white. The American flag may not be redesigned with rainbow colors replacing the red and white. If the flag shown were truly a red, white and blue American flag, it should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
The Spokesman- Review, what were you thinking?
