FLAG ETIQUETTE


Here are some tips to make sure your tribute is a respectful one: 
  • Display the flag only between sunrise and sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs. The flag may be displayed for twenty-four hours if illuminated in darkness. 
  • Do not display the flag in inclement weather. 
  • Whether displaying the flag vertically or horizontally, make sure the canton of stars is visible on the upper left-hand side. 
  • Do not let the flag touch the ground. 
  • An unusable flag that is damaged and worn and can no longer be displayed should be destroyed in a dignified way by burning. 
  • When not on display, the flag should be respectfully folded into a triangle, symbolizing the tricorn hats worn by colonial soldiers in the Revolutionary War.
