Patriotic & Proper

HAPPY INDEPENDANCE DAY!!! Whatever you've got planned today, we wish you sunshine, safe celebrating, lots of smiles and a heart of gratitude that we live in a free country. In honor of a day that revolves around our nations flag, we figured it only appropriate to share some flag etiquette that we stumbled upon.


**Display the flag only between sunrise and sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs**

**The flag may be displayed for twenty-four hours if illuminated in darkness**

**Do not display the flag in inclement weather**

** Always make sure the canton of stars is visible on the upper left-hand side**

**Do not let the flag touch the ground**

**The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously**

**A flag that is damaged/ can no longer be displayed should be destroyed in a dignified way by burning**

** When not displayed, the flag should be folded into a triangle, symbolizing the hats worn by soldiers in the Revolutionary War**

Who knew there was flag etiquette?! Happy 4th of July!!
