Why no U.S. flag atop Quantico structure?

Why no U.S. flag atop Quantico structure?

Can anyone out there enlighten the public as to why there isn't an American flag flying atop the Marine Corps Memorial structure in Quantico that symbolizes the Marines landing on Iwo Jima in World War II?

Certainly, they could not say there isn't a flag large enough for anyone to notice it.

If the J.L. Hudson Co. in Detroit owned, and displayed, the world's largest American flag in the world on their building in downtown Detroit, then there really is no excuse.
