fictional interview to introduce the matter, followed by an
explanation of the facts.
Is the yellow fringe on some of the flags seen in the United States purely a
No. The yellow fringe is only found on military flags, and the
gold-fringed American flag is a military flag that represents Martial
Law which is not subject to the Constitution. The one without is known
as the peace flag of the United States and it symbolizes that the
Constitution and the United States is alive and well.
But they are both displayed across the U.S. and everyone knows we're
not under martial law. Why does it matter whether one or the other is flown?
There's an international law known as The Law of the Flag. Whichever
flag is displayed, that's the rules you follow. If it's on a ship, the
ship's captain is the enforcer of the rules of the country whose flag is
being flown. If it's in a fenced-in enclosure, such as an Embassy, that
country's Ambassador and the rules of his country are in charge in that
So if the Martial Law flag is on display in a courtroom, doesn't the
Constitution still apply?
The rules of the court are governed by the local authorities, but
mostly by the Manual of Courts Martial, a military publication. One of
the big differences is that under this court martial law, you are guilty
until proven innocent. The court could even confiscate your possessions.
It doesn't matter whether or not you even get charged with a crime.
But how did this get started? I never knew Martial Law had been declared.
Only the Commander-in-Chief can order the use of the military flag,
and it was done in 1959 by President Eisenhower.
It just seems that this should be illegal somehow...
The Constitution says no new state shall be formed within a State. By
planting courts and other buildings into our midst that are governed by
the laws of the gold-fringed flag, little "embassies" of these
enclaves are formed. They represent themselves to be government
officials of the United States of America - the same country that is
governed by the Constitution - but based on all these facts, perhaps you
can see that there are two distinct and different groups. So a new
'state of martial law' is being formed within all States of the Union.
That violates the Constitution. Our country has been taken over right
beneath our noses!
flag is a military flag and its use can only be ordered by the
President of the United States. It is not recognized by any nation on
earth and it has no constitution, no laws and no courts. The
Commander-in-Chief must sign an executive order declaring martial law to
activate its use.
flag is a flag of peace and symbolizes the United States of
America, the Constitution and our freedom. It has only three colors -
red, white and blue. The specifics are detailed in the Constitution. It
is recognized around the world as the flag of our nation.
1959 President Eisenhower signed an executive order to have the
military flag displayed, and it has not yet been revoked.
Facts Governing This Issue.
does it matter which flag is displayed?
are certain laws that are fundamental. All countries acknowledge
their use and they help all nations communicate and deal with each
other. One of those basic laws is The Law of the Flag.
Law of the Flag
time-honored law outlines the way flags are used by all nations on
Earth. Originally most foreign trade was conducted by sea and the ship
captains would fly the colors, or flag, of the country under whose
protection they would be traveling.
practice continues to the
present day. The ship, its cargo, crew and passengers are subject to the
laws of that country. The ship's master, or captain, is empowered to
enforce the laws of the country of the flag being displayed. Aboard that
ship, the captain was the final judge of the law. This is also why
marriages performed by boat captains are legal and binding.
the ship would go into port to do business, others could see the
flag flying on top of the ship. That was the captain's way of giving
notice about which country and set of laws he represented. The others
had to be willing to do their business according to the represented
country's laws. If they did not agree, they did not do business with that
is the term for raising a flag on land. Walls or fences around an
area create an enclave, or enclosure. The rules of the country whose
flag flies within the four corners governs the property and people
inside the enclave. This is how embassies are established with foreign

visit the American embassy, the area inside the embassy walls is
considered American soil. Everyone within is under the jurisdiction of

as a military flag. At sea, these are known as Admiralty flags.

when an admiralty flag is raised on land, it is an identifying point for
troops. However, during peace time, the military or admiralty flags has
not traditionally been displayed in general public areas.
flag is legal?
international community only acknowledges the legitimacy of the red,
white and blue American flag as symbolizing the United States of
America. The yellow-fringed flag does not represent the U.S.A. For
example, if you enter a courtroom that displays a yellow-fringed flag,
that is your notice that the laws of the United States that are based on
the Constitution, are not in effect at that location. Instead, the
military laws are in effect for everyone within that room.
This is why it matters which flag is being displayed.
it unconstitutional to do this?
our country were following the laws of the Constitution, this
activity would be illegal.
our nation is governed.
Constitution outlines the way our nation is governed. Article III,
section 1, describes the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and all other
courts of the nation. These rules apply while operating under the
American flag. Many citizens call this the Flag of Peace. In other
words, when the red, white and blue is flying, it symbolizes that the
Constitution is alive and well and all rights are preserved - including
the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
the official flag.
the Constitution, "The flag of the United States shall be
thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of
the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field." As
legalized by Constitutional Amendments, new states have become
represented by a new star as they were admitted to the Union.
nation, one government.
Article IV, section 3 of the Constitution of the United States of
America, no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction
of any other State. Many examples exist which show that government
officials and judges adamantly refuse requests to remove the gold
fringed flag and replace it with the constitutional flag of the United
States as defined in Article 4, sections 1,2, and 3 - which has no fringe.
are yellow-fringed flags being displayed in the USA?
simple answer would be that whenever a flag is displayed, it
symbolizes the ruler behind the flag. Perhaps a better question would
be, "Why do Americans allow a flag to be displayed in the USA that
replaces their Constitutional flag?"
the military is ruling the USA.
are the yellow-fringed flags being displayed?
across them in courtrooms. The courts are supposed to be the enforcer of
our nation's rules. Instead, many courtrooms are enforcing military
rules that are ultimately coming from the Commander-in-Chief.
courts have been infiltrated.
any courtroom displaying a yellow-fringed flag, the judge is the
ship's captain, so to speak. The judge is the enforcer of Martial Law as
outlined in "The Manual of Courts Martial." Federal judges are not
elected; they are appointed by the President, who is also the
Commander-in-Chief. States judges are appointed by the governor, who is
also the state's military commander.
other countries view this.
rumors have circulated around the globe about who ordered the
yellow or gold fringe onto American flags. Why is it still there? Some
rumors include conspiracy theories against various groups. Other rumors
explain that the whole Admiralty Law thing is just a convenience for
local authorities that does not have any meaning behind it. Perhaps its
just a marketing ploy to make our flag, and our nation, seem prettier
and more colorful. Does that have the ring of truth? Read the facts and
decide for yourself.
does the display of fringed-flags allow our freedoms to be stolen
which 'ruler' is symbolized in our courtrooms.
flags displayed in our courtrooms are actually standing
inside military courts. The judges sit in summary court martial
proceedings against civilians. These courts are governed in part by
local rules, but mostly according to "The Manual of Courts Martial."
This manual is published by the government for the military. It details
the crimes that civilians can commit. They are classed as 'Acts of War,'
and this is all covered by 125 pages within the Manual of Courts Martial.

to "The Manual of Courts Martial" fringed-flags flown outside
are operating under Admiralty Law. When they are flown inside, they only
represent military courts that are dealing with administrative matters.
Cases brought to these judges are considered court martial proceedings
that define a military flag.
1933 President Theodore Roosevelt described that the admiralty,
maritime or administration display of the flag is established by the
presence of "gold fringe, gold braid, gold eagle, gold spear, or gold
ball atop the flag pole." In 1979 these standards were set down in Army
regulations as part of the War Powers Act.
submitting a plea to this type of court, you are silently assenting,
or admitting, that the court has jurisdiction over you. That is how the
display of the fringed-flags allows our freedoms to be taken away.
are the consequences of this Martial Law?
President as Commander-in-Chief is the highest law, not the
Under these conditions, the President is given great power.
Martial Law, the President may seize property, organize and
control the means of production, seize commodities, assign military
forces abroad, institute stricter enforcement of martial law, seize and
control all transportation and communications, regulate the operation of
private enterprise, restrict travel, and, in a plethora of particular
ways, control the lives of all American citizens.

the legal notices of your newspapers, look for warrants that have
been issued for the forfeiture of property. Look for these words:
persons having or claiming an interest in or to said property must
file their claim in accordance with Rule C(6) of the Supplemental Rules
for Certain Admiralty and Maritime Claims within 10 days after the first
publication of this notice or within such additional time as may be
allowed upon application to the court, and must file their answer to the
complaint within 20 days after their claim."
these rules, confiscating property is allowed because you are
guilty until proven innocent. Other property may also be seized, whether
or not a conviction ever occurs. Here are two examples from Colorado.
Happens From Here?
have had debates with people who take great issue with the information
shared here. Some have dogmatically stated that the Constitution is the
Law and the government is outside the Law. I wish they were right, but
they fail to see or understand that the American people have been
conquered, unknowingly, yet conquered all the same.

established by the Commander-in-Chief, not the Constitution. You have
only to read the previous Senate's report on National Emergency to
understand that our Constitution - and our Constitutional form of
