DALLAS — An update now to a flag flap that's drawn a lot of interest from News 8 viewers.

On Sunday night, we showed you an American flag with 61 stars instead of 50. A Dallas man purchased the plastic, Chinese-made  flag at a Dollar Tree store.

A store manager said it was not a flag, but was sold instead as a "patriotic banner."

Dollar Tree now says it is destroying the 61-star flags.
