I recently visited a restaurant that had a very large (10'x20'), very old looking, and very tattered flag covering one of the walls as part of the decor. It had many holes that were unmended, had been cut short width-wise, and was only partially unfurled, with the bottom portion piled on top of a set of shelves. My immediate impulse was to call the manager or fire off an email to the owners. But I wondered if this was truly antique flag, is it okay to display it in this shape. Should it be destroyed, or at least displayed unfurled with a plaque describing its history and how it came to its current condition, and why is it not restored. Thanks for any comments or advice.
