"Treat your United States flag like you would treat your Grandfather. Bring him inside when it is rainy and very windy. Give him light at night. See that he is clean and in good-shape."

Get your flags ready for the popular Flag Holidays! A list of Flag Holidays is always at the end of our newsletters, and the most popular Flag Holidays are just weeks away. Showing pride and spirit is an American tradition. 

Our March winds have been tough on flags and poles also. It is always a good idea to lower your flag during storms. You can repair a small United States flag by trimming the fray off, and re-stitching a hem on the fly-end. For large flags, call us, to repair and clean your flag. 

Our website r esource  link provides information on Flag Etiquette, Unserviceable Flag Ceremony, and Flag Folding Ceremony. 
The most asked questions about flag code laws are answered in the 
U.S. Flag Code, a part of the United States Code.  
The United States Code is the official compilation of the Federal laws of a general and permanent nature that are currently in force. Each Title is divided into Sections, and then subtitles, chapters, sub-chapters, parts, sub-parts, or divisions. Titles may also have appendices which may be divided into sections, rules and/or forms.   
So it is not surprising that the U.S. Flag Code is difficult to maneuver.

The U.S. Congress asks for a clarifying interpretation of the code and in 2011 the Congressional Research Service provided the document linked here. 
 US Flag Code

We use this most recent clarification on the US Flag Code dated 2011, by the Congressional Research Service,  Report for Congress, 
The United States Flag: Federal Law Relating to Display and Associated Questions , both Title 4 and Title 36.
This Congressional Report on the US Flag Code also contains recent additions to the US Flag Code.
 P.L. 109-243,   "The Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005" addresses "Restrictions on Display of the Flag by Real Estate Associations".
Also included in 2011 is the requirement for "Flags Supplied for Veteran's Caskets" to be Made-in-USA.

Have a High Flyin' Flag Season!
