No. The flag sash program was created to enable students to represent their international citizenship (i.e. Students who hold a passport from another country) and students who have gone overseas on a Marquette international program.
Q: What do double country sashes look like?
The flag sash is split in half. One half of the flag sash (hanging down one shoulder) is one flag and the second half of the flag sash (hanging down the other shoulder) is the second flag.
Q: What does a triple country flag sash look like?
Students who order a triple country flag sash can choose to have the flag sash split in equal thirds, which means one flag will be somewhat hidden behind the neck when worn. Or, students can elect to have it split in two with one side representing one single flag and the other side (hanging down the other shoulder) to be split in two with the second flag on the upper half and the third flag on the lower half.
