By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with The Hamptons Edge Real Estate Co.

If you are going to display the flag this year, here are some tips from the U.S. Flag Code to fly it correctly. Happy Independence Day from your friends at Hampton One real Estate Group, your Buyer Broker in Hampton One real Estate Group.

  • The flag should be displayed only from sunrise to sunset. If displayed at night, it should always be illuminated.
  • The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, or merchandise.
  • When hung on a wall, the blue union should be at the top left, from the observer's point of view.
  • When flown in an auditorium or place of worship, the flag should be in front of the audience and to the speakers right.
  • When flown from states or localities the American flag should be at the center and at the highest point in the group.
  • When flags of two or more nations are displayed they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height . The flags should be of approximately the same height.
  • When multiple flags are flown, the American flag should be hoisted first and lowered last.

Good post Bill. It's important to remember the price paid for our independence and the symbol of that is our flag.
