Sunday June 14 is Flag Day, and it commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag on that date in 1777.
Fly your flag proudly, but remember flag etiquette should be followed when displaying the Stars and Stripes.
- When displayed from a staff projecting from a window, balcony or a building, the union (blue field with white stars) should be at the peak of the staff.
- Display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs in the open, but when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed 24 hours a day if properly illuminated in the dark.
- It should not be displayed in inclement weather except when an all-weather flay is used.
- No other flag should be placed above the American flag.
- When displayed from a staff in a church or auditorium, it should occupy the position of honor and be placed at the speaker’s right as he faces the audience.
- The flag should never touch anything beneath it.
Our club will be putting flags out at the Kaufman Veteran’s Memorial.
