'We the People of the United States' actually have two national flags, a Military Flag and a Civil Flag that has Red and White Stripes for Peace-Time.
Below is a picture the U. S. 'Civil Flag' for Peacetime. We have never seen this flag because our government has always kept us in a constant STATE OF WAR via the War Powers Act!
The actual 'Civil Flag' denotes Civil Jurisdiction under the Constitution and Common Law. The style and use of this flag became encoded into Law in 1874.
