It means "under seige". An old military signal to warn replacements or support that the fort has been taken or close to it

I believe it was intentional because you wouldn't hang up the American flag upside down and not notice! IMO it's just an excuse/cover up to say it was an accident. That's my two cents...

It was a dissatisfied election outcome message that the country is "under siege" and was done in several places around the US

Yeah and that's why people from 50 states have signed petitions to secede.

Has anyone been over to https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/ it's crazy and shows a lot of people are not happy with the way things are going in our country.
