Focus On: The American Flag  


This is one of those times of the year when many of us are, proudly, flying the American flag. Because the flag is to be treated with the utmost respect, there are official rules to ensure that it is taken care of, properly. Here are a few of those rules.

  • Flags and weather - The flag should not be outside if it is raining, snowing, or if the wind exceeds 20 miles per hour.

  • Flags appearing next to each other - If the flag is being displayed side-by-side with another flag, both flags should be at the same height, with the American flag at the observer's left. And, if you are flying three flags, the American flag should always be placed in the middle.

  • Flags on a flagpole - As long as the American flag is on top, it can share the pole with a flag from a state or an organization. There should, however, never be two national flags on the same pole.

  • Keep the flag looking its best - If a flag becomes frayed, it is acceptable to trim and re-hem it.

  • Flags after dark - Outdoor flags should always be taken down at sunset or illuminated at night. 

  • Disposing of the flag - Believe it or not, burning the flag is the appropriate method for disposing of the American flag as long as it is done respectfully and in private.

If you are interested in learning more about the guidelines for the American flag or are in need of other information on a completely different topic, you can be sure that our research experts will handle all the investigation and analysis for you. So, whether you want to find out about the "Grand Old Flag," traveling to the Grand Canyon, or purchasing a grand piano, be sure to contact GoodDeeds.
