This modified image of a US Flag was brought to my attention in the past few days. This modified flag was made and promoted as a fundraiser for an Alabama Lodge that I did not give permission to do, nor would I have. I believe the US Flag should stand alone without any images of ANY KIND on it. I love our Fraternity with all my heart and respect, cherish and am proud of the Masonic Symbol of the Square and Compasses. But it has no place on the US Flag! In saying this, I do not want any Alabama Mason to distribute, sell, purchase or display this modified flag.
