Question: 
What is the definition of the flag?
Answer: 

In 1989 Congress agreed that term “flag of the United States” means any flag of the United States, or any part thereof, made of any substance, of any size, in a form commonly displayed. That makes it pretty clear we are not talking about articles of clothing that happen to be red, white and blue, have stars and stripes and may resemble the flag. It also makes it clear that we are not talking about digitized or other “images” of the flag.
