Flag for Desecration

Something solid and concrete placed on something fluid. Most flags move freely, they flutter and ripple on a windy day, and hang down loosely, collapsing under their own weight on a calm day. Waved for the winner, draped or flown half-mast for the deceased, proudly flown for allegiance ‘Mr Red White & Blue’. This flag depicts a paving flag. A paving flag is the heaviest of flags. It does not move, however it does crack – ‘Small flowers Crack Concrete’. This flag is for the violation of flag protocol, lay it on the ground, stamp on it, walk on it, spit on it, piss on it.
