    Re: Weild flag on independence day.

    Check the spelling of the first word of your title (which is the second word of your post).

    You used "independence" in your title but "dependence" in your post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Weild flag on independence day.

    It's grammatically and orthographically correct but unnatural. You wield a real or metaphorical weapon. You wave, show or display a flag.

    Now that you have spotted your spelling error, I have corrected the spelling in the title.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
