Taken from ‘LET’S BE RIGHT ON FLAG ETIQUETTE’
Question: What is the significance of the gold fringe, which we see on some American Flags?
Answer: Records indicate that fringe was first used on the flag as early as 1835. It was not until 1895 that it was officially added to the National Flag for all regiments of the Army. For civilian use, fringe is not required as an integral part of the flag, nor can its use be said to constitute an unauthorized addition to the design prescribed by statute. It is considered that fringe is used as an honorable enrichment only. (Military tradition)
Question: What is meant by the term “breaking the colors?”
Answer: The term “breaking the colors” most likely evolved from “General Instruction #3” in the Officer’s Guide and Manual of Ceremonies which states: “Comrades should be careful never to pass between the Flags and the station of the commander.” In many areas of the country, this area is considered “hallowed ground” and violations are quickly noted. There is, however, no reference to this custom in Flag code provisions. (A.C.)
Question: In displaying the flags of the branches of the Armed Services, in what order should they be displayed?
Answer: In “order of seniority.” The order of march is stated in regulation and calls for the Army to march first, followed by the Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and the Coast Guard. This is the order in which the services were established. The same “order of seniority” would be used for display in one rank, such as a Color Guard, from left to right. (Military Regulation)
