    Yes it is.

    Good thing we have a FDA so that those bugs don't wind up in the tea.

    No, it's not, because the image on the lable isn't an American, "flag, colors, or ensign".

    From the flag code:

    "...shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America."

    The important bit is "in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either". It doen't have to be a complete flag to qualify as a being covered by flag code.

    In other words, it doesn't need 50 stars to be covered.

    It doesn't qualify as an American flag. Sorry! There aren't 50 stars, nor 13 stripes. I hate it for ya.

    Did you read the highlighted part?

    "the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either."

    Do you have difficulty understanding what the words "the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either" mean?
