How to display the American flag

Posted

 The American flag is an important symbol of our country, and it deserves to be displayed with respect. Whether you're hanging it outside your home or inside your living room, displaying the American flag properly will show everyone that you care about your country. The right way to hang the American flag is to start with a pole that's at least as tall as the height of the flag. Then, place the flag so that the union (the stars) is at the top and to the observer's left.
