Folding The Flag

Handling & Care

Two people face each other, each holding one end of the flag. Stretch it horizontally at waist height and fold in half lengthwise with the stripes facing up and the blue field facing down.

flag-respect

Fold the Flag in half lengthwise again. The union (blue field) should be showing on both sides of the fold.

One person holds the Flag by the union while the other starts at the opposite end by making triangular folds.

Continue the diagonal or triangular folding towards the blue union until the end is reached, with only the blue showing on both sides and the form resembling that of a three-corner hat or triangle.
