What I don't understand, however, is why it is apart of law when we seem to have this thing about Freedom and all that stuff. Other than pride, what is it hurting?

I mean, if Flag Desecration is legal why not flying a flag higher than another?

C'mon. That is just a little insane.
Basically it comes down to being that you are claiming that country for the one higher up. Or you are claiming that territory for the country whose flag is raised the highest. Technically it could be construed as a declaration of war.
