American Flag Bikinis?

This time of year, we get lots of requests for American Flag bikinis. A desire to display your patriotism and love of country, even at the beach or pool is great, though US Flag Code specifies that “the flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.” Most of these swimsuits aren’t actually made of flags, but instead bear the stars and stripes characteristic of Old Glory. Still, a replica of our nation’s symbol placed on your butt seems disrespectful. american-flag-bikini-13
