The original flag salute, was created by Francis Bellamy, a christian (also a socialist), who also wrote the original "Pledge of Allegiance," without the "under God," inclusion which wasn't added until after Hawaii and Alaska was admitted to the union (re: Red Skelton). The Bellamy flag salute became controversial when the Nazis adopted it during WWII. Congress then admended the Flag Code.
