Sugar Bowl 2010

Return to Flag Etiquette Page

The opening ceremony featured the singing group Lady Antebellum. Behind them an oversized American flag was brought onto the flag, then allowed to fall to the ground in front of a national audience.

Two Flag Code violations were committed by this ceremony:

  • (Section 8b.) "The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground."
  • (Section 8c.) "The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free."
