Dosen't it mean somebody is in distress?

Elden is correct - to fly any flag upside down means you need urgent help. This is particularly important in marine situations and should NOT be abused.  ( rescuers tend to be a little pissed of if you are fooling around with this ! )Cool

What is truth -

If you want an entertaining way to understand the meaning of the flag being flown upside down, view the movie The Last Castle starring Robert Redford.  Awesome film.

One day I said, 'I will go out & look for my enemies' and on that day I found no friends. The next day I said, 'I will go out & look for my friends' & on that day I found no enemies. ~YeddaHeads~

PS...Texas is not in distress and the flag should not be flown upside down.  Just sayin'...Kiss
