1/WEIRD OBSERVATION re: BHO's 2013 Inaugural flag display. I posted this to a "defending #BetsyRossWasAPatriot ' thread earlier, but the 21 star flags stuck out to me as odd...I get the familiar 13 colonies flag, but 21?
2/ Here it is... The 21 star flag was only flown for one year 1819-1820 under President Monroe...I could understand some sentimentality re: the 21st star was for Illinois, BHO's 'adopted' home state, but if so why not celebrate his roots at the 2008 1st inaug, instead of 2nd?
3/ we know #multiplemeanings exist... Good discussion/ideas appearing in comments- thx.
From a visual standpoint, was this a callout to cabal loyalty?

the flag stars form this pattern

1 3 2 1 5 0 2 1 1 3

1+3 2 +1 = 322 50 2 1+1 3 =322
322 50 322
