US: Inverted Philippine flag was `honest mistake'
Associated Press
Sun Sep 26, 4:06 pm ET


MANILA, Philippines – The U.S. government said Sunday it made an "honest mistake" when it displayed an inverted Philippine flag — which wrongfully signified that the Southeast Asian nation was in a state of war — in a meeting hosted by President Barack Obama.

The Philippine flag was displayed upside down behind President Benigno Aquino III when leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations met Obama in New York on Friday.

"This was an honest mistake," U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Rebecca Thompson said in a statement, adding, "the U.S. treasures its close relationship and close partnership with the Philippines."

The American embassy will find out how the "unfortunate" incident happened, she said.

Philippine foreign affairs department spokesman Ed Malaya said the government understood that it was "an honest error" that "should not detract from the true significance of the summit, which showed the unprecedented cooperation between the ASEAN and the U.S."

It was not immediately clear who pointed out the mistake. A photograph of Aquino sitting beside Obama with the inverted flag behind them was displayed on a government website Sunday but its caption did not point out the error.

During the summit, Obama discussed ways of bolstering economic ties between the U.S. and Southeast Asia as well as Asian regional concerns such as territorial disputes in the South China Sea and Nov. 7 elections in military-ruled Myanmar.

Gross mistake, honest or not.

If there is one thing that we Filipinos respect so much is our national flag, without that, we have no identity. When I went to Rockefeller center in New York, I looked for the the Philippine flag and was almost in tears embracing the flagpole. That moment, I was so proud that I have an identity, a country that truly claims me as her own.

From the Philippine side, Noynoy's protocol officer apparently didn't display enough presence of mind.

Mao gyod Day Wolfie...
Nganong gadinanghag, as host country, they have to make sure na plantsado lahat, lalo na pag flag ang pinag-uusapan. Perhaps they're not as hospitable as the Filipinos pero sana man lang nag-effort sila.

Precisely. The protocol officer cannot make mistakes...no room for error. There is no substitute for incomptence.

They knew better than that ! Everything in a flag has a meaning and represents something for that country! Shame on whoever placed our flag.

Stupidity, or malice?

Then again, the Philippines is not in the position to take offense...
