The Pledge should be re-written.  No flag is necessary, as it is a symbol and thus, idolatry (a primitive state of mind based on pure superstition that an object somehow is imbued with extraordinary power).

I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America , one nation with liberty and justice for all.

Really, is there anything else that’s needed or required?

Elevate public social and political consciousness, now!
