There has been a disagreement for several weeks on whether the American Flag, State Flag and Pack Flag should be carried in a Halloween parade. The flags we have are the pole stand type and are heavy. In the past 5 years we have never carried the flags in the parade and there are only two people that have had an issue out of 30 some parents with us not having the American Flag. Many think that because of Halloween being a satanic holiday that it is not proper to have the American Flag in the parade unless it is the Veterans. The Veterans Association said that if anyone disagrees with it being carried then it should not be so that is what we did, we did not carry the flags last night. One parent said because we are the Cub Scouts of America we should have it. We have a small patch flag on the shoulder of our uniforms and they said that if we have that flag then we should have the large flags. The patch flag is part of our uniform and something we wear at every outing. Can anyone give their opinion on this matter? What we decided to do by not carrying it was it wrong or right? Also, there was another cub scout pack in the parade and a girl scout pack and they didn't carry any flags either. Thank you.
