Have you ever wondered if there are official rules for displaying the United States Flag? In fact, there is a Federal Flag Code which provides guidelines for properly displaying Old Glory inside, outside, alone and with other flags. Check out this pdf file which has all of the information available regarding US Flag Etiquette.
“On the national level the Federal Flag Code1 provides uniform guidelines for the display of and respect shown to the United States flag. In addition to the Code, Congress has by statute designated the national anthem and set out the proper conduct during its presentation.2 The Code is designed “for the use of such civilian groups or organizations as may not be required to conform with regulations promulgated by one or more executive departments” of the federal government.3 Thus, the Flag Code does not prescribe any penalties for non-compliance nor does it include enforcement provisions; rather the Code functions simply as a guide to be voluntarily followed by civilians and civilian groups.”
Topics covered in the Flag Code include display of the flag 24 hours a day, flying the
flag in bad weather, flying the flag at half-staff, ornaments on the flag, destruction of
worn flags, display of the U.S. flag with flags of other nations or States,
commercial use of the flag, size and proportion of the flag, and restrictions upon
display of the flag by real estate associations.
