It is custom to display the national flag from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open on all days that weather permits, but especially on national and state holidays and other days that may be proclaimed by the President of the United States.

The U. S. flag may be displayed 24 hours a day if properly illuminated during hours of darkness. The U. S. Flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.

When displayed outdoors with other flags, the position of honor for the U. S. Flag is the U. S. Flag’s own right which is normally the extreme left position as the flags are most frequently viewed.

The U. S. Flag should never touch anything beneath it—ground, floor, water or merchandise.

Show your patriotism and fly your U. S. flag everyday, especially on Independence Day, July 4th.
