The American state of Minnesota has announced that all US flags sold in the state should be of American manufacture, and warned violaters of the law, that they would be punished by a 1,000 dollar fine, or imprisoned for three months. The series of new laws is supported by the Flag Manufacturers' Association of America. It has complained about a flood of US flags, valued at 5.3 million dollars, imported mostly from China last year. (Daily India, Thursday)
