KTRH-740’s Josh Carroll and Scott Braddock report that Houston’s Federal Reserve bank branch flew the Mexican flag today:
The flag of Mexico flew at the Federal Reserve Bank’s Branch in Houston Tuesday because Mexican dignitaries are in town, officials said.
“They’re holding a conference on trade between Mexico and the U.S.,” Federal Reserve Vice President for Houston, Robert Smith said.
Several callers to KTRH Tuesday afternoon were upset by the display. But, it is proper procedure for a foreign flag to fly at the same height as the U.S. flag on federal property during the visits of foreign officials, Smith said.
