Trivia Question: Old Glory


In observation of Memorial Day, I thought I would ask you all a flag trivia question:


Where's the only place the American flag flies all day, never goes up or comes down, never flies at half-mast and is never saluted?

My niece Jen is a total rock star!! It's the moon!

Jen said...

I'd say we're a family full of sharp knives that doesn't take too much shit from anybody.

Ann said...

Spot-on, Jen!

Mike said...

My husband "Mr. KFuj" and I are thinking that the flag on the moon doesn't really fly, it is held up by wires. We both were thinking the Iwo Jima Statue in DC has a flag that never goes up or down, never at half mast, and never saluted.

I will post the picture on my blog. I agree the one on the moon with quailty but what about this flag too??

Good one, it stumped me.

I asked it to some friends over the weekend and they didn't know either.

Jinjer said...

I had no idea...good one for sure. Way to go Jen!

Ann said...

Kfuj: I would have to assume, just because of it's location, that the Iwo Jima flag is saluted, at least once in a while.

Jen said...

I walked by Iwo Jima just the other day and gave it a big salute!!

All kidding aside, there's a Fort something or other right next to Iwo Jima and the military has regular functions right near it and the Marine Corp Memorial...it has to be saluted once in a while..

actually, i'm confusing iwo jima with korea...scratch what i just said :)
