american flag/this space for rent

There is a bit of dead wall space at my gym. It appears to be part of the air circulation system. Most of the time, this space is used for advertisements. Recently, however, management has apparently been unable to entice someone to pay for its use. Far be it from them to let it go to waste. In the absence of advertisements, they have tacked up an American flag.
Really, what could be more patriotic than a space used alternately for advertisements or the American flag?
