How to Hang the American Flag Vertically

How to hang a US Flag verticallyIf you want to honor September 11 by hanging the American flag by your front door, remember that there is a flag etiquette to respectfully display the American flag vertically as per the U.S. Flag Code (Public Law 94-344), a joint Congressional resolution.

(1) Make sure your flag must be displayed to its full extend, with no sag or wrinkles against your front door.

(2) Drape the flag over the front door. I used a clear tape to secure it from the inside.

(3) IMPORTANT: The Blue/ Stars portion (known as the Union side) must be at the top left corner of the door when you're facing the door.

 

Additional US Flag Handling Tips:

(1) The US Flag must be handled respectfully at all times.
(2) Do not sloppily display the US Flag. It is a sign of disrespect. If you choose to display the US flag, it must be done appropriately.
(3) When there is more than 1 flag to be displayed when compared to state, cities or local flag on the same halyard, the US Flag must be hoisted at the top before any other flags.
(4) When there is more than 1 flag to be displayed of different nations, the flags must be the same size, with not one bigger than any other. It must be on its separate staff, at the same height. International usage forbids one flag flown higher than another.

More Common Sense Tips:

  • The US flag cannot touch the ground.
  • The US Flag cannot and should not be used as a decoration.
  • The US Flag cannot and should not be used as a table cover.
  • When carrying the US flag, do not put other things on it.
  • The US Flag should not be made as a clothing material.

 

Public Law 94-344 is known as the Federal Flag Code. It contains rules for handling and displaying the U.S. flag enacted on July 7th 1976.

We are learning this same techniques in the Cub Scouts. We need to learn to honor the American Flag and know the real meaning behind it. The color of red represent the blood that was shed for freedom.

Thanks Loreena for bringing this valuable topic to the front door!  If more Americans understood the investment in our freedom we would still be world leaders.  We so appreciate your detailed report on the symbol of our nation, how it should be displayed and not disrepected.  Also when your flag has expired, it should be burned.

God Bless America and those who have served us and protected our shores and our prescious freedom
