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.
