I agree, about time and this is as it should be. It is the American Flag, not the Chinese flag; it should be made in the US in the first place. Good news.

The same goes for flags in any country, one would think that these should be made in the country of origin and not imported. I won't buy a Canadian flag if it is made outside of Canada.

As for flags for flagging spammers, let's get them!
