What does it mean to fly a flag upside down?

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. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Most individuals who have served in the military service of our nation will (or should) recognize this signal.

As a result of the many traitors and enemies we as a free people have, both foreign and domestic, as a result of the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against US citizens and their life, liberty and property, and as a result of policies that have allowed (and continue to allow) enemies of this nation to enter in large numbers through a porous border policy, I believe the life, liberty and property of US Citizens are in dire danger and distress.

Flying the U.S. flag upside down is a sign of distress, a call for help. It is not appropriate for mourning. That is what half staff is for.

There is a jerk down the street from a friend of mine who commits so many flag violations (at least six) it's a wonder someone hasn't shot him. First, he flies the Don't Tread on Me flag (often flown by Tea Party members) at the top of the staff. That, in itself, is fine but then he flies the US flag upside down at half mast underneath other flag on the same staff. The US flag is badly tattered and both are flown 24/7, in any kind of weather, without any night time illumination. I understand the message the jerk is sending out but that doesn't excuse disrespecting the flag so many people have died for.

I have been there, done this.

If you have never seen about a dozen or so Military Motor Cycle (MC) Club stop in front of an establishment and correct a flag situation, you have not lived.

All of the neighbors should ban together and have a serious talk with the violator of U.S. Code.

Also, I have seen the improper placement of the U.S. Flag. It is always on it's OWN RIGHT when displayed with another flag. Think of yourself as the U.S. Flag. Position yourself in any direction. Your eyes are your front. Any other flag should be on your left side, you are always on your own right side.
