Citizen of the World: No American flag, please!

For his press conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Sen. Obama had a strange, but predictable request:

"Nicolas Sarkozy's advisers received only one demand from the team of the Democratic candidate: no American flag for the press conference, because it's a candidate being received, not the president of the United States."
Yeah, because we wouldn't want people to get the impression that he already thinks he's president or anything.

Of course, I can't be expected to understand the nuance of this request, as I'm not a "citizen of the world" and I only know one language, but it just strikes me as a bit odd.  Especially when only 37% of the folks back home (you know, the ones who can actually vote for him) find him to be very patriotic.
