Flag Holidays and Flag Etiquette

Flag Holidays and Flag Etiquette

All of our U.S. flags are proudly made in America. We offer a wide variety of flags in our showroom or we can custom make a flag for you. Our U.S. flags are available in two materials, nylon and poly. Both flags have sewn stripes and embroidered stars. The nylon is a lighter weight and thinner material, while the poly is a heavier material and resists fading and tearing almost twice as long as a nylon.
Military and state flags are available in your choice of nylon or poly.
Below is a list of the major flag flying holidays. The American flag can be displayed proudly every day of the year, but it is especially fitting to fly the flag on these holidays.

Flag Etiquette:

The fundamental rule of flag etiquette is to treat flags with respect and common sense.
The list of flag etiquette rules is lengthy, and listed below are a few of the main points.
The U.S. flag takes precedence over all other flags when flown within the United States. It should not be flown lower than another flag nor should it be smaller than another flag flown with it.
It is proper to fly the U.S. flag at night, but only if it is spotlighted.
In a public gathering, the U.S. flag should be to the right of the speakers or on the wall behind them.
Displaying a flag on a wall: When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right, that is to the observer’s left. In a window, the union should be to the flag’s right when viewed from outside.
