Democrats finally add Old Glory to convention stage on second day
After slogging through a boisterous convention on the floor, Democrats were forced to make a last-minute adjustment to the on-stage decor, after a report pointed out there were no American flags present.
As speaker after speaker took the stage, screens behind them produced stunning scenery of the country and cool grey backgrounds.
But there wasn’t a single American flag onstage – notwithstanding the fact that most of the speakers were lawmakers, who each have Capitol offices festooned with flags and other patriotic ware.
Well, there was this one.

How about a little contrast.
