Feb 09, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) co-sponsored the Old Glory Only Act to prohibit any flag other than the American flag from being flown over American embassies or consulates.

Owens. “To fly any other flag over our embassies is a slap in the face to the American heroes who fought and served so we can live in the greatest country on earth.”
