We will mention just two things in this
post and close with a quote. While these
two things may not be important to you,
they are very important to us.
The first concerns those of us who fly
the flag at our homes. On Veteran’s Day
the flag should be flown at half-staff
If you have a fixed pole, you can put
a black ribbon above the flag but below
the finial. The ribbon should not be
more than 10% as wide as the flag, and
twice as long as the flag.
It should be tied in the center with a
bow so the two resulting parts hang down
as long as the flag.
