Those who do not want the flag are not bad people. This island is not pristine. It is strange to me to have concern over a properly cared for flag, but comfortable allow the litter and use of resources involved in today's style of "camping". It seems shameful to me that this is an issue when the clean up of the island has only been in the spotlight for the past few years. To me, a well maintained flag means we have respect for the area and intend to use it properly. When I place an United States flag somewhere, I mean for you to know that this is a place I love, respect and would die for, it is never litter, never to be forgotten. It is placed with purpose and good intent. Lighten up, folks.
