To ensure that you fly your flag respectfully, here are some flag etiquette basics:
- Whenever you fly more than one flag on the same flagpole, the U.S. flag should fly above the rest.
- Ordinarily, the flag is flown from sunrise to sunset. If you fly it at night, it should be illuminated.
- When you lower the flag, don’t let it touch the ground or any other object.
- When a flag is worn and no longer fit to fly, it should be burned in a dignified manner
