I was watching "Glory" for no doubt the 325th time the other day.  The scene came up where Col. Shaw is ordered by Montgomery to help burn the city of Darien.  I noticed that in showing his disapproval of orders, Shaw orders his colors to be lowered.  The scene quickly transitions to the next scene.  I realize that this simple gesture of holding the flags at waist level obviously showed extreme disapproval.  So this got me thinking about other displays of flags and their significance.  If you are aware of any...please add them on.
