Thursday, Bommarito Automotive SkyFOX showed video of a tattered flag in South St. Louis near Gravois and Quincy.  When News 11 aired footage of the torn flag, hundreds of Facebook fans posted that is was disgraceful and should be taken down.

News 11 reached the owner of the tower displaying the flag.  A spokesperson for TowerCo told us the company was notified over the weekend about the damage.  It was replaced Thursday morning.  She went on to tell us TowerCo has an active maintenance program and regularly replaces tattered flags.

The company flies flags from a lot of its monopole towers, when local zoning laws allow.  TowerCo believes the damage to this flag occurred during last week's turbulent weather.
