American Flag Etiquette:

The National Flag Conference held on Flag Day in 1923 adopted the following guidelines that all Americans who fly our country's symbol should know:

- When the American Flag is displayed on the same pole with the flag of a state, community or society, the American Flag shall always be on top.
- When the American Flag is displayed on different poles of the same height, our American Flag is always placed to the flag's own right and the observer's left.
- When the American Flag is flown with flags of other countries, each one must have their own pole of the same height. Each flag must be the same size and raised or lowered at the same height simultaneously.
- When the American Flag is flown from a horizontal staff, the stars should be placed at the peak of the staff.
- When the American Flag is displayed horizontally or vertically against a wall, the stars should be in the uppermost corner of the flag's own right and the observer's left.
- When the American Flag is flown at half-mast, you should first hoist our flag to the peak for an second and then lowered to the halfway position.
- When you lower the American Flag that is flying at half-mast or half-staff, first hoist our flag back up to the peak position, then lower Old Glory.
- When the American Flag is lowered at dusk, never allow our flag to touch the ground, but receive our flag with open hands and arms.
- When the American Flag is flown at night, a light or lights should always be illuminating our flag.
- When the American Flag is deemed no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country you should bring the flag to your local VFW Post. So if you have a worn or damaged flag and would like to dispose of it properly, your local Veterans of Foreign Wars post will be happy to help out.
