Tidewater Trader

Tidewater Trader September 8, 2021 Page 38 Facts The United States Flag, adopted on June 14, 1777, is the fourth oldest national flag in the world. Denmark’s flag, adopted in 1219, is the oldest. • A flag expert is called a “vexillologist.” • The blue field on the U.S. Flag is called the “union.” • OnMemorial Day (the last Monday inMay), to honor all who died in battle, the flag should be displayed at half-staff until noon only, then raised to the top of the staff for the remainder of the day. • Since 1834, the U.S. Flag has flown continuously next to the grave of the RevolutionaryWar hero, the Marquis de Lafayette, near Paris, France. • June 14 was proclaimed Flag Day by PresidentWoodrowWilson in 1916. While Flag Day was a popular celebration in scores of communities for many years afterWilson’sproclamation,itdidn’treceiveitsofficialCongressionaldesignation until 1949. The United States Flag should always be treated with the utmost care and respect. Remember, the flag represents a living country, and as such, is considered a living thing. • Always display the flag with the blue union field up – never display the flag upside down, except as a distress signal. • It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flag staffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. • Always hold the flag carefully – never let it touch anything beneath it: the ground, the floor, water or merchandise. • Always keep the flag aloft and free – never carry it flat or horizontally. • Always keep the flag clean and safe – never let it become torn, soiled or damaged. • Always dispose of a flag properly, preferably through veterans’ organizations. • Always treat the flag with respect.
