To me the back is a strange place to put it. Maybe the trend started in 2001 when the MLB teams did it. I can't recall teams putting flags there before then.

Kind of how I feel about it. But if my boss tells me to wear this or that, then...

Incidentally, I haven't seen any flags on HS officials in OR.

Did your fellow officials actually tell you what they think, or is that just something someone so full of themself is automatically blessed with?

As a side note, I've noticed people are losing their ability to recognize sarcasm.

Seems as though you missed his point...

One more little nuance to add to this is the flag on your uniform one with a gold border or a white border???

Couple years ago at our college clinic we were informed flags with the gold border should only be worn by veterans or those who served in the military and the white borders by others.

It was quite interesting but everybody agreed and honored that fact.

Something else for you all to quibble about

The gold/white officially makes this ridiculous. I thought the idea was uniformity. I'm all for recognizing veterans in the right situation, but on the football field doing a job isn't the right situation.
