Sven- that's what I always thought, till this article showed up.

The moment I read it I checked on Snopes. There is no particular meaning given to the folds as there is no written code or tradition that requires anything but that particular way.

However, the ceremony a**ociated with it may have a speech or script that will read. That is what is then taken as the central part of the flag-folding 'ritual', not the simple action of folding and presenting it.

Sorry, but the nature of the text and the obviously bogus interpretations given set off my BS-detector.

I lay awake at night wondering if any of my posters will pass the "snopes" challenge.
