Did you know there are a lot of specific rules about how you should show your patriotism with the American flag? Our friends at AARP outlined many of these in this great article.
Some important rules they point out:
- Never let the flag touch the ground. When hanging or displaying your flag, the key is to not damage it – so don’t drop it or let it touch anything beneath it.
- Never wear the flag as a costume. The U.S. Flag Code makes very clear that no part of the flag should be worn as sportswear or as a costume, or used to make drapery or bedding. For those who really want to show off their patriotism, opt for a patch or a lapel flag pin worn near your heart.
- Never display the flag except from sunrise to sunset, unless it is lighted at night. This means, according to the American Legion, that other people should always be able to recognize the flag. If there’s bad weather, you must take the flag down unless you have an all-weather flag.
- Never display the flag with the union down. Only in instances of extreme danger to life or property should the flag be displayed that way, as a distress signal.
