MADISON, Wis. (AP) - All Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wanted to do was celebrate Flag Day.

But his first attempt to mark the occasion Tuesday fell flat because the image the Republican posted on Twitter was of an American flag with just 48 stars.

Walker deleted the post within minutes, but screen shots of it circulated across social media.

Walker posted a new message with an image of a 50-star flag about 40 minutes after taking down the original. Both carry the same message: “Let us remember all that Old Glory stands for on Flag Day.”

Walker was posting the messages on his political account from Mexico, where he is participating in a state-led trade mission. He used his official Twitter account to post another Flag Day remembrance using a different image.
