Flag Etiquette
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Etiquette might be a new word in your vocabulary. If you have good or proper etiquette, you practice good behavior when you are with other people. There are certain rules of etiquette that need to be followed when you are around a United States flag. Some of them you may already be aware of. Some of them might be new to you.
 
2     Have you ever watched a parade? Sometimes flags are carried in a parade. The flags may represent states or groups or even countries. If you watch closely, you will see most of the flags dipped down when the reviewing stand is approached. The United States flag will not be dipped, or lowered.
 
3     Here are some easy rules to follow about using flags. Flying a U.S. flag upside down is supposed to be a sign of distress or danger to the person who hung it that way. A flag is never to be used as decoration or drapes. Long pieces of cloth with red, white, and blue stripes may be used as decoration. In this case, they are called bunting. Bunting should always be displayed with the blue stripe at the top. Advertising names or logos should never be printed on a flag or the pole from which it is hung.
