The former tech entrepreneur was eyed wearing his American flag pin on the wrong side of his lapel during Thursday’s debate in Houston.
According to the United States Flag Code Section 8(J): “The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.”
Yang, 44, placed his flag pin on his right side.

I didn’t hear a word Yang said because I was distracted by his flag pin being on the opposite lapel.

It’s not the first time that the Yang has made headlines for his debate fashion. Back in June, he became what’s believed to be the first male White House hopeful to go tie-less at a presidential debate.
