RNC accidentally celebrates the wrong flag in awkward 4th of July post

The Republican National Committee’s initial attempt to celebrate Independence Day bombarded Twitter when critics noticed the party was using the wrong flag.

Instead of Old Glory, the RNC shared an image of two flags, each with a single star in its blue field and the wrong number of stripes around it.

Some reviewers said it was the flag of Liberia, a West African nation, but the stripes didn’t match that either.

The RNC deleted the tweet after critics mocked the organization for botching a simple task.

But while the tweet is gone, the screenshots remain:

Several other locations ― including the San Francisco District Attorney and the Austin Police Department ― used the same set of incorrect flags in their Independence Day messages.

These tweets remained online at the time of publication.
