I believe Nevada has an exception for burning the California state flag. You can burn as many California flags as you want in Nevada and they will be happy to loan you a lighter.

News flash- Woman in wrong country. Needs BM scholarship

LIMA (Reuters) - A naked model photographed using Peru's flag as a saddle while mounted on a horse will face charges that could put her in jail for up to four years for offending patriotic symbols, the country's defence minister said on Wednesday.

The suggestive shot of Leysi Suarez, whose main job is dancing for the band Alma Bella, or Beautiful Soul, was splashed on the cover of DFarandula magazine and has caused a political uproar as Peru prepares to celebrate the 187th anniversary of its independence from Spain on Monday.

"These are patriotic symbols that demand total respect, and using them improperly requires punishment," defence Minister Antero Flores told reporters. "This is an offence."

Flores has ordered a public prosecutor to take up the case and file charges.

Suarez said it was patriotic to pose for the photo.
"I haven't committed a crime. I love Peru and show it with my body and soul," the dancer said on RPP radio.

Mario Amoretti, a well-known lawyer, said it depends in part on how Peru's red-and-white flag was used.

"It's one thing to cover your body with the flag, but quite another thing to be naked and using it as a horse's saddle," he said.

The photos were republished on the Web site of Peru's El Comercio newspaper: http://www.elcomercio.com.pe/ediciononl ... 7-21/las-p olemicas-fotos-leysi-suarez-causan-revuelo.html

If you must burn the flag:

*Use a burn barrel, or a burn platform, if you have not obtained prior permission from the Org to conduct a fire art installation.

*Clean up any burn scar that results.

*Plant trees, or synthesize calcium carbonate, to offset the carbon emissions.

*Do not burn the flag if it has paint on it. Scrape the paint off and dispose of it as MOOP.

*If the flag does not belong to you, only burn it if its owner consents to your act of wanton destruction of this nation's sacred icon of federalism. Remember, no means no.

*Dispose of any resultant ashes as MOOP.

*If you plan to twirl the burning flag about you whilst it smoldereth and deflagrateth, do not do so while wearing any synthetic materials, and have an assistant present with a suitable blanket for extinguishing the flames in case of emergency.

*If the flag is made of nylon or other such synthetic polymer, wear the proper breathing apparatus if you will be in the midst of the smoke.

*If anyone attempts to behave in an aggressive manner towards you while you are desecrating the noble banner dyed with the blood of patriots and steeped in the blue ink with which is writ the Constitution of the world's greatest experiment in Liberty, seek the assistance of a Ranger to resolve the conflict.

*If the flag is burning on the ground, do not urinate on it to put out the fire. You are not allowed to urinate on the playa.

Apparently the person who wrote this law missed school the day they taught about run-on sentences.
That which does not kill us only makes us stranger.
