The United States Civil Flag of Peacetime

Over the years patriots have tried to wake Americans up to the fact that we the people are under a constant military rule even though we should be under Civil rule except for time of war.  Problem is the powers that be keep us under military rule because it is easier to control the direction of our country. Sounds far fetched I agree.  But,those who claim this fact do have something to back this up.  Why is the only flag flown over our country during the last 100 or so years a battle flag? . . . EDITOR

We the People of the United States,
actually have two national flags, a military flag and a civil flag for peacetime.
They have several important distinctions and meanings.

Almost all Americans think of the Stars and Stripes “Old Glory” as their only flag.


…” Through usage and custom, horizontal stripes had become adopted for use over military posts, and vertical stripes adopted for use over civilian establishments. The Civil Flag, intended for peacetime usage in custom house civilian settings, had vertical stripes with blue stars on a white field. By the Law of the Flag, this design denoted civil jurisdiction under the Constitution and common law as opposed to military jurisdiction under admiralty/military law.” . . . read complete report
