Are you paying attention?
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the American flag has gold fringe all the way around it, and gold tassels attached to it? Have you ever wondered why, or what that stands for? Do you care?

Records indicate that fringe was first used on the flag as early as 1835.
It was not until 1895 that it was officially added to the national flag for all regiments of the Army.
For civilian use, fringe is not required as an integral part of the flag, nor can its use be said to constitute an unauthorized addition to the design prescribed by statute.
It is considered that fringe is used as an honorable enrichment only. (Military tradition)
The courts have deemed without merit and frivolous, lawsuits that contend that the gold fringe adorning the flag conferred Admiralty/Maritime jurisdiction.
There is NO law or Constitutional or amendment that gives the Pretty Fringe any legal meaning for civilian use.
Ignorant people have to have a "reason" and have invented many meanings not of fact.

I know what it means.
It stands for Admiralty Law.
Take it out of that context and it's just considered a mutilated flag that stands for nothing.

I know, of course. It's for indoor and ceremonial use.
