    Not if you can't keep it out of the rain, you can't. Of course, that's only assuming you want to treat the flag with due respect. Flag code is strictly voluntary. If you want to disrespect the flag by painting it outdoors on your property, you have a first amendment right to do so.

    Would you be ok with someone spray painting the side of your house without permission?
    It's a public highway, he does own it.

    So do several other people. If the state lets one do it they have to let another do it.

    A painting isn't a flag. A flag isn't a painting.

    A painting of a flag is treated as a flag for purposes of flag code:

    Sorry I waffled on that a bit, it was a bit of a stumper. The answer is Air Force One doesn't follow civilian flag code, military flag code is controlling.

    Do you realize the section you quoted was talking about using the flag for advertising?
