    It's certainly not illegal to burn an American flag, as that is the method used to retire old flags.
    Though if done in vain it's not looked well upon by law enforcment, and is sort of viewed as anti-American activist behavior...

    Though some people are trying to amend the constitution to state that this is illegal.

    It's not illegal. It's just usually not looked kindly upon. But law enforcement can't do anything about it.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    no, it's not ilegal...
    however, you are very, very, likely to get you butt kicked if you do it just about anywhere but behind closed doors.

    only by violence-prone morons, which I realize the country is full of...
    it's just a swatch of fucking cotton. If you spend the money on a flag just to burn it up, good for your dumbass.
    Just don't set my goddamn grass on fire.

    Flag burning should be illegal.

    Same for Australia.

    What is it that they are trying to say ? Americans/Australian (whatever) should burn in hell ??

    Thats the only thing i can think of when people burn the flags of countries.
