Happy Flag Day – Is Your Flag Displayed Properly?
Even though it's not a national holiday, we celebrate Flag Day every year on June 14, in honor of the day the flag of the United States was adopted by the Second Continental Congress, June 14, 1777.
There are lots of things to remember when displaying, positioning, storing and even disposing of a flag. They include:
- Don't let the flag touch the ground.
- Display the flag only from sunrise to sunset or twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.
- Don't fly flag upside down unless there is an emergency.
