Is this true that's gonna happen?
Ha ha... The only people that burn flags on purpose tend to be people that see themselves as enemies of whichever country's flag is being burnt.
Subsequently you give over power to said parties when you make a point of saying 'you cannot burn this flag' because there's nothing you can do to stop them and now they know how much it aggravates so will do it double.
At a personal level, I had an England flag as a table cloth for the start of the World Cup but it got covered in booze so I threw it out. Certainly doesn't make me any less patriotic - It's just a piece of material until you imbue it with some power it doesn't have.
What about a pen with a picture of the flag on it? Can you destroy it when it's finished or of it runs? Absurd. It's these sorts of things that make me long for less government and less inteference in my everyday life. I'll take my chances with the criminals and whatnot if they'd just sod off and stay out of my business.
It is not the place of a Government to tell you and enforce what a flag means to you. V strange...
