Children's Judgments of Flags and Flag-Burning.
Helwig, Charles C.; Prencipe, Angela
Child Development, v70 n1 p132-43 Jan-Feb 1999
Examined 6-, 8-, and 10-year olds' conceptions of flags as social conventions and their understandings of the symbolic and psychological consequences associated with transgressions toward flags. Found that despite age-related increases in understanding of flags as meaningful collective symbols, children at all ages considered transgressions to be important and to have moral consequences.
