As we approach the Fourth of July, here are some tips on the etiquette on displaying the American flag. Information from USFlag.org:
- When displaying the flag against a wall, vertically or horizontally, the flag’s stars should be at the top, to the observer’s left.
- The flag should not be used as draping for a a platform. Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting goes on the top.
- When the flag is displayed over a street, it should be hung vertically, with the stars to the north or east. If the flag is suspended over a sidewalk, the flag’s stars should be farthest from the building.
- Flags can be displayed 24 hours a day, if illuminated.
