Delegate calls for D.C. flag in displays

WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia's delegate to Congress wants the district's flag to be included anytime the military displays the flags of all 50 states.

Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton will lead a series of speeches on the House floor Wednesday. Delegates from other U.S. territories are also expected to participate.

Their goal is to encourage the Senate to adopt language already approved by the House that would require the military to display the flags of the district and other territories alongside the flags of the 50 states. Norton's office says the Army flies the district and territorial flags as a matter of policy, but other branches of the military do not. Norton says the practice is disrespectful to service members who don't get to see their flags represented.
