    Jamaica’s attorney general has sparked criticism after saying it was “disrespectful” to Jamaican law for the US embassy to fly a rainbow flag following the Orlando shooting.

    In response, the US embassy in the capital Kingston asked Marlene Malahoo Forte to explain her legal reasoning. Forty-nine people died when a gunman opened fire in a gay club in Florida.

    I would be more worried about the faux pas of two flags on one pole.

    Two flags on one pole here is perfectly fine flag etiquette as long as the American flag is on top.

    What looks odd is that there is no space between the two, probably by lack of shackles, and that the properly placed lower rainbow flag is not really a flag but a banner, probably the best the embassy could come up with on short notice.

    How very wonderful that America flew for our dead our flag around the world. Thank you President Obama.

    ironically the at the moment the pic was taken the rainbow seems up side down. I am sure the Jamaican attorney general didnt notice.

    A country's embassy is an extension of its sovereign territory and can fly whatever it wants from its flag pole. Jamaica's AG can go fuck himself.

    ^^+1, what an idiot obviously AG needs to be schooled again on embassy protocol and sovereign territory just as her embassy in New York could do something totally ridiculous and we would have to respect that.

    The US should take the flag down after Jamaica gives back all the US Foreign Aide they have accepted.

    I totally misread your post! For a brief moment I thought... Faux pas? I call it a ménage à trois!
