Happy 4th of July…Learn about Flag Etiquette!


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
