COMPLIMENTS OF
CONNIE ERICKSON
 

 

HOW TO PROPERLY DISPLAY THE FLAG:

  • The custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on flagstaffs in the open, but it may be displayed at night upon special occasions to produce a patriotic effect.
  • When the flag is hung vertically on a wall, window, or door, the union (blue field) should be to the observer’s left.  When the flag is hung horizontally against a wall, the union should also be to the observer’s left.
  • The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.
  • It should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, unless an all-weather flag is used.
  • In a procession, the flag is the right of another flag or, if in a line of other flags, in front of the center of that line.
  • The flag should not be displayed on a float except from a staff, nor draped over the hood, top, sides, or back of a vehicle.
  • When the flag is displayed on a vehicle, the staff should be fixed firmly to the chassis.
  • No other flag should be placed above the flag of the United States or, if on the same level, to its right.
  • The United Nations flag may not be displayed above or in a position of superior prominence to the United States flag except at United Nation's Headquarters.
  • The flag displayed with another against a wall, from crossed staffs, should be on the right (the flag’s own right) and its staff should be in front of the other staff.
  • It should be at the center and the highest when displayed with a group of state flags.
  • When flags of states, cities, etc., are flown on the same halyard, the United States flag should be at the peak.
  • When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height, and the flag of the United States should be hoisted first and lowered first.
  • When displayed from a staff projecting from a building, the union (blue field at upper inner corner) should be at the peak of the staff.
  • When it is displayed otherwise than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out; or so suspended that its folds fall as freely as though the flag were staffed.
  • When displayed over a street, it should be suspended vertically with the union to the North in an East and West Street, or to the East in a North and South Street.
  • On a platform, it should be above and behind the speaker, with the union uppermost and to the observer’s left.
  • When flown at half-staff, the flag should be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to half-staff position.  It should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.  Half-staff is one-half the distance between the top and bottom of the staff.
  • When the flag is used to cover a casket, the union should be at the head and over the left shoulder.
