Respecting The Flag

Handling & Care

The American Flag is a representation of our country, our people and the devotion we have to our nation. In order to respect the Flag, you should maintain a certain level of care at all times. Keep your Flag in good condition by making sure it is clean, dry, protected from harsh conditions and is displayed in a respectful manner.

Ensuring that your flag is in good condition and is respected is reliant upon some basic practices. Your flag should not be touching the ground, the floor, water or merchandise. Store it in a dry and safe location where it cannot be torn or the pole warped. In addition, it should not be used as a wrapping for any objects for gifting or any other means outside of its intended purpose.
