Flag Fact Friday! 11/4/16

FLAG FACT FRIDAY
memorialdaycard_banner-v2

The U.S. is the only country that does not dip its flag to the host country
at the Olympics opening ceremonies. When the U.S. flag-holder was asked to
do so for King Edward VII at the 1908 London games, he supposedly
responded, “This flag dips to no earthly king.”

Ralph Rose, the American flag bearer in the 1908 London Games, did not dip the flag to the Queen.
