Old Sci Fi book

[ Edited ]

I'm looking for an old book...read it a long time ago.  Was set in the future, the American Flag was banned, was death to be caught with one.  Main character started a rebellion I think.  Ended with him dying to the "Butcher's" razor.  Main Character may have been named John.  Thanks everyone!

Edit: The title may have had Moon in it..or it was set on the moon?  Or something about the moon?

Re: Old Sci Fi book

Were you thinking about Robert Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress? It's about a lunar revolt. I don't remember if there is a ban on the American flag, though.
