Burning of the National Colours or the flag of an Armed Service or the National Colours of an allied nation is strictly prohibited under National Law.

Punishment would be a fine equivalent to the projected worth of the flag. If it was the National Colours of the Provincial Union; the individual can face up to 4 months of incarceration depending on where they received the flag from.

(The National Colours can be purchased commercially but a government-issued standard is available to military and government locations, burning of that flag can and will land you in prison as it is made of special made materials)

The burning of the flag of Torculmania is not illegal but it is definitely looked down upon by most citizens. Those that burn the flag is usually shunned from society and will most likely lose their job.

If you are caught burning the nation's flag in J o J, you are then tried for treason and disorderly conduct. Arresting officers are to burn the hand the offender used to light the flag with the hot ashes of said flag, if possible.

Flag burning is completely legal as its a piece of fabric. It is protected as freedom of expression.

Flag burning is also the proper way that the military disposes of damaged flags.

Burning Our Flag is Big Disrespect and Considered Blasphemy!

Postby Libonesia » Sat Aug 08, 2020 5:41 pm

Freedom of Speech and the Right to Protest is Guaranteed Under the Constitution Even Though We Are Governed By the Islamist Government But When it Comes to Burning of Our Flag You've Already Crossed the Line Which is Totally Illegal, If You Did it so in Purpose For your Cause, you Will Be Charged for Blasphemy and you Will Be Prisoned for 5 Years Under Community Service With the Fine of ₺165,000 Libonesian Lira Equivalent to $30,841 USD But it Will Not End You in Death Sentence Even Though We Have Death Penalty, Unlike With Other Muslim Countries Like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan or Iran Which They Will Immediatly Sentenced you to Death But Here in Libonesia You Don't Need to Worry About Your Life if You Are Charged With Blasphemy Unless if You Commit Heinous Crime, Well the Reason its Because Our Flag Are Considered Sacred Due to its Religious Text and Symbols With the Name of God and His Last Beloved Prophet Written With it, Aside From Religion it is Highly Valued and Respected By Most Libonesian Even By Minority and Non Muslims Due to its Symbol of Unity, Defence, Indepenece, Prosperity Within the Color of the Flag and Especially the Color Red on the Top of the Green Which is Symbolizes the Expense of Martyred People Who Scrifice and Spent Their Life Fighting For Our Motherland Since the Time of Our Forefather, Yes You Can Criticize and Say Anything About Our Government as Long you Don't Burn the Flag Because it Has a Deep Meaning to Most of Libonesian.

Illegal. Any one caught burning the patriotic Kancian flag will be sent to 20 years minimum. Repeat offenders will be imprisoned for life. Those caught defacing a national monument can be sentenced to death by firing squad, and 57 BLM protesters and rioters have been executed for this offense.

What a waste...

Postby American Liberty States » Sat Aug 08, 2020 6:32 pm

If the flag is their property and the individual is not trespassing, they have a right to burn it. It is tyrannical and a laughable waste of time + money to treat it otherwise. Also, why harm a good customer of the flag industry? Silly authoritarians! :rofl:

It is legal to burn the national flag as part of public protests, though, it may or may not be illegal to burn the national flag of other countries (depends on the laws of the said country).

Burning is actually considered the most-polite method of disposing of a worn-out flag in Aldina. As for flag-burning as an act of protest, the Imperial government largely does not concern itself with such matters; it must be a very slow day indeed if a nation's police are pursuing such "crimes" as burning pieces of cloth. As such, no laws protect flags specifically from burning, though the act of flag-burning may be in violations of other laws, such as fire bans, depending on how it is carried out.

Depends on intent. When the flag is worn, tired, or faded, flags may be surrendered to the government and the government will burn it in a respectful manner. If a civilian burns the flag in protest, they can be fined or spend the night in jail.
