June 14 is Flag Day. The first U.S. flag was adopted on June 14, 1777. Many people put flags outside their homes and businesses on this day. Most city streets are lined with flags.
There is a right way and a wrong way to display the flag. A few flag flying rules are:
The flag should not be flown at night without a light.
The flag should not be flown in rain or bad weather.
Never let the flag touch the ground.
Fold the flag when not using it. Don’t stuff it in a drawer or box.
After a tragedy or death, the flag is flown at half-staff for thirty days.
Old flags should be burned or buried. Don’t throw them in the trash.
You do not need to wait until Flag Day to fly the flag.Proudly display “The Red, White, and Blue” every day of the week!
