I just received my grandfather`s burial flag as a gift from a relative. I have the rest of my grandfather`s war papers and effects and they thought I would appreciate having the flag as well, which of course I do. (My grandfather was a gunner in a Renault FT-17 tank and served in France in WWI.)
For the briefest moment, I actually thought of removing the folded flag from it`s triangular case and putting it up on the wall. Three-seconds later I realized how stupid that would be. The question is this: how inappropriate would that have been? Would it have merely been kind-of-stupid, or would it have been outrageously insulting and offensive?
