Lately, many people have proudly chosen to display black and white American flags with a blue stripe in the middle.
The Thin Blue Line flags, which show support for police officers, is the symbol of the #BlueLivesMatter movement, also showing support for the fallen Dallas police offices.
Check out some of the flags below:

To some, that blue line on the flag is just that, a blue line. But to others, that line is a family crest. pic.twitter.com/ev9mrYDLPD

This is the kind of spirit that this country needs in the wake of the horrific Dallas shooting and continued threats on law enforcement officers across the country. United we stand.
