Slut for Spinners
There's a similar sort of laws in the US, believe it or not. Obviously, none of them are enforced.Another thing may be that some countries have pretty strict laws for what you can actually do with the flag. In Norway, the pattern of the flag is protected by law, and there are certain stipulations that say it must always be presented as a full rectangle, may not be hung without a pole (unless it's over a coffin at a funeral), may not ever touch the ground or be stepped on, and so forth. As a result, it's kind of limited what you can do to the flag, and putting it on a coaster is completely out of the question. Not sure how strict the rules are in other countries, but it could be considered a little too tacky to just plaster it up as decoration anyway.
Strangely enough, I love The Big One's livery and I can imagine these Intamin trains would look great with a similar livery...yet I would be completely repulsed by any train draped in an American flag livery.
