Show the Proper Pride on Flag Day – Dave’s Diary

Today is National Flag Day — the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777.  Flag Day was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30, 1916 but it wasn’t until August 3, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Honoring the flag fell out of fashion in the 60’s and 70’s but President Reagan brought a sense of patriotism back as did the 9-11 attack.  Where do we stand today?  Just look outside and see how many flags you see. And notice if they are flying right!

 

Flag Do’s and Don’ts (from the U.S. code):

  • Do fly the flag from sunup to sundown. Leave it out overnight only in a well-lit area.
  • Don’t display Old Glory with its blue field of stars facing down — it’s a signal of extreme distress.
  • Do keep the flag from touching anything below it.
  • Don’t raise it in rain, sleet, snow, etc.
  • Do destroy a seen-better-days banner in a dignified manner, preferably by burning it (really).
