Ever Wonder Why Some American Flags Have Blue Stripes Through Them? Here’s Why.
By BA Staff
Lately, many in this country have chose to showcase black and white American flags with a blue stripe in the middle. You might be wondering what these flags mean, well don’t worry they actually have a pretty patriotic meaning behind them.
The flags are meant to show support for the #bluelivesmatter movement, which is a movement meant to show support for the fallen Dallas police offices.
Check out some of the flags below.

To some, that blue line on the flag is just that, a blue line. But to others, that line is a family crest. pic.twitter.com/ev9mrYDLPD
