How To Fly The Flag Properly

The Fourth of July is the biggest flag waving day of the year, but do you know how to fly it?

The Flag Code details specific instructions on how to show the flag the proper respect. Don’t fly it like it was at the King’s X recently, as seen in the photo above.

The flag should not be used as a drapery, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general. You can use bunting if you want to decorate with red, white, and blue.

The flag should never be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform. You can put a flag patch on military uniforms, and firemen, policemen and members of patriotic organizations can also use patches on their uniforms.

Never allow the flag to touch the ground or any other object.

If you are going to fly the flag with another flag, the United States must always be at the top.

If you are going to fly the flag on a pole with other flags on separate poles, the flag of the United States is always placed in the position of honor – to its own right.

No other flag may be larger than the United States flag, and the flag of the United States is always the first flag raised and the last to be lowered.

No other countries flag may be flown on a taller pole than the Unites States flag.
