"I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

You're not just doing to the flag and the flag is just a physical symbol. Call it idolatry, if you wish, but no one is worshipping the flag in this case.
