On American holidays like Flag Day (June 14th), you'll want to show your patriotism by hanging the U.S. flag. One thing that makes it easier is a flag holder, which can be left permanently wherever you decide is the best place to fly the flag -- maybe a porch or balcony. But wait -- are you sure you're displaying the American flag correctly? Did you even know there is a right and wrong way to display the flag?
Turns out there are lots of do's and don'ts when it comes to displaying Old Glory, all included in the U.S. Flag Code. We sort them out for our residential flag displayers, who won't be too concerned about flag etiquette that pertains to, say, a federal government display. Share this information with friends and family, and show your respect.
The 4th of July is just around the corner:
- Independence Day Party Central
- Quick and Easy Patriotic Decorations
- Simple, No-Sew Patriotic Outdoor Pillow Covers
- Easy Ways to Create a Patriotic Tabletop
And don't forget to keep an eye on everyone in or near the pool -- private or public. The CPSC eleased a report stating that drownings are on the rise during 4th of July holiday period for the past few years.
