Plan on Displaying the American Flag This 4th of July? Here is the Proper Flag Etiquette from the Source

Plan on displaying the American flag this 4th of July? Here is the proper flag etiquette from the US Senate. Did you know that there is a  federal law relating to the proper display of the American flag? To me it’s all about respect for our country and the liberties we enjoy and embrace. Here are the main things you need to know if you plan on displaying the flag.

  • It is the custom to display the American flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open
  • Night Display etiquette -  the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness
  • Manner of hoisting – The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously
  • Inclement weather – The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is used
  • The American flag should be displayed daily, on or near, the main administration building of every public institution
  • Polling Day Etiquette – The American flag should be displayed in, or near, every polling place on election days
  • Schoolhouse Flag Etiquette – The American flag should be displayed, during school days, in or near every schoolhouse
  • No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America
    • The American flag should not be dipped to any person or thing
    • Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor
  • The American flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property

Also the American flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water. I hope this is helpful as we honor and remember our independence and those who have lost their life so we could enjoy ours.
