Unfortunately, the top latch that held the flag in an upright position was broken during the week, thus causing it to flip upside down. On behalf of the hotel and all of its team members, I assure you that we would never knowingly allow the American Flag to be shown in any disrespectful way. Ron Williams General Manager Thank you for addressing the issue so promptly. I would like to add, that there is a symbolism behind the flag being upside down. For those that don’t know it symbolizes a Country in distress. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
