  10. 10. DistressThe flag should never be displayed with the union (the starred blue union) down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.http://drkatesview.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/flagindistress.jpg<br />
  11. 11. In MourningPlace the flag at half-staff (or half-mast, on ships), hoist it to the peak for an instant and lower it to a position half way between the top and bottom of the staff. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_1lGFYYNkw_o/S-MX6PwDiAI/AAAAAAAAA3o/dzLduO3xitA/s1600/!!FlagHalfStaff.jpg<br />

  13. 13. Colors At Night“It used to be that you had to take the flag down at night time. But now, if you fly the flag at night, you have to keep it illuminated throughout the night.” - United States Army Vietnam Veteran Specialist 4 Gilberto G. Celaya, Sr.http://www.ahrc.se/new/contents/media/images/187WhiteHouse2Wnight.jpghttp://farm4.static.flickr.com/3650/3560722399_5c79f283b7.jpg http://inlinethumb42.webshots.com/7081/2228042420103332577S600x600Q85.jpg<br />
  14. 14. Not As ClothingThe flag should not be used as "wearing apparel”.

  16. 16. NeverThe flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything. It should not be embroidered, printed, or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, napkins, boxes, or anything intended to be discarded after temporary use.<br />http://wwwdelivery.superstock.com/WI/223/1566/X1304/PreviewComp/SuperStock_1566-0176441.jpg<br />http://www.1stforparties.com/partysupplies/images/flag%20napkins.jpg<br />

  18. 18. DisrespectContrary to an urban legend, the flag code does not state that a flag that touches the ground should be burned. Instead, the flag should be moved so it is not touching the ground. Also, the flag should never be stepped on. <br />http://flagsgonewild.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/protestor_us_flag_103.jpg<br />http://www.pensitoreview.com/images/photo-buprsh-stpranding-on-flag.jpg<br />
  19. 19. Proper Disposal <br />“The proper way to dispose of a flag is to burn it. But not like what you might see people do in other countries. We normally do it on Flag Day, and sometimes we have a ceremony depending on how many people are there.”<br /><ul><li>Post Master Earl Carry VFW Post 574 Madeley-Roberts Post, Plainville, CT</li></ul>http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/db/Flag_Disposa.jpg<br />
  20. 20. Folding the FlagThough not part of the official Flag Code, according to military custom, flags should be folded into a triangular shape when not in use. Each fold of the flag also carries a deeper meaning, which is recited at the Flag Folding Ceremony said during holidays including Memorial Day and Veterans Day. For instructions on how to fold the flag, please resort to the United States Flag Code. http://danieldeubank.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/folded_flag.jpg<br />
