Democratic Party Tweets Out Other Flag to Celebrate Flag Day
The Democratic Party took some heat over the weekend for tweeting out a "Happy Flag Day" message that included a photo of a young Hispanic boy holding another flag.
The image remains on the official account of the Democratic Party. It looks like bunting, but the DNC has not clarified which flag it is.
