Flag Day observance

By Lisa Crockett

June 14 is Flag Day – a holiday believed to have been founded by a Wisconsin school teacher to teach students about the history and care of the American Flag. For your Flag Day observance, remember:

  • The flag should be flown in sunlight or lighted by an appropriate light source.

  • The flag should be flown in fair weather.

  • The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing.

  • The flag should never have any mark, word, insignia, letter, number, figure, or drawing of any kind placed on it or attached to it.

  • The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.

  • When the flag is lowered, no part of it should touch the ground or any other object.

  • The flag should be cleaned and mended when necessary.

  • When a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning it in a dignified manner.
