Displaying the American Flag; Proper Flag Etiquette


(WBRE/WYOU-TV) The Fourth of July Holiday is about celebrating our country’s Independence.
 If you have an American flag you may not be aware of the specific guidelines on how to properly display old glory.
    Based on “Federal Flag Code” you can display the US Flag outside from sunrise to sunset.
    If you want to fly the flag after dark it needs to be illuminated.
    You can only fly an all-weather flag in inclement weather.
    From your porch, the Union of the Flag should be at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half-staff.
    The flag should not touch anything below it or rest on the ground.
    Experts also point out American Flags should not be draped or used as throws or table covers.
