What do you think? Do you agree with changing the flag?
Samuel J. Kapral, 90-year-old Navy Vet, served our country during World War II and loves America. Kapral has always been concerned by the limited space for stars on the American flag, and he tried to change it. What do you think? More from TheBlaze:
“Why are they in such a limited area?” he told WCBS-TV, adding that from a distance they’re barely recognizable.
So four years ago Kapral set about redesigning the flag, finally coming up with a look that expands the blue field for the stars to nearly half the area of the flag…
“I know some people are very sentimental about this,” Kapral told the station, adding that his own son doubts Dad’s new design will gain traction.
So WCBS showed Kapral’s design to a tough audience — New Yorkers walking the streets.
“That’s his proposed design?” Josh McCord replied after taking a peek. “No, why should we change it?”
“It’s so highly symbolic of our country and people are so attached to it, no,” Gary Scheft told the station.
