Were I a school principal, I would have the flags hand made by students in art class. Make sure that the stars and stripes are proportionally correct and that the dimensions meet Taft's executive order--or the latest ececutive order. Pin it to the wall. Cheap, good to develop math skills, measuring, drafting, planning, teamwork, painting, etc. No one said it had to be bought or made from cloth. It would be a chance for teachers to do cooperative teaching--history of the flag, the colonies, etc. There is lots to learn. First thing to learn is that the law is the law. Second thing is to interpret the law.
