Pauline Breshnahan On The American Flag

Joey,

With Memorial Day this weekend I thought I could pass along a little information on flying your American flag that people may or may not know.

On Memorial Day flags should be flown at half-staff until noon.

It should not be displayed at all during stormy or rainy weather, unless for some special reason and in NO case should it ever touch the ground. It should be raised with hearty briskness and when lowered, it should be done solemnly and slowly.

When the flag is displayed horizontally or vertically flat against a wall or similar place, the blue field must be at the left of a person facing it.
I have proudly sold American flags at the store for over 12 years and proudly carry ONLY American flags that are Made in USA!

Whenever purchasing an American flag I think that people do not realize that many of the flags that cost less are made overseas.

Please buy American and fly it with pride.

Our next important date for flying your American flag is Flag day which is June 14th.

Don’t forget to thank a Veteran this weekend.
