France makes it illegal to use their flag “in a degrading manner”

You could face a stiff fine in France if you try anything funny with their flag. The government has enacted a new rule against destroying, damaging, or degrading the French flag in public spaces.

So next time someone laments that it’s legal to burn the American flag, suggest that we should be more like the French.
