Facts about our Flag

  • A Flag should always be in good repair, and never be allowed to fly when ripped or dirty.
  • When carrying the flag, you should NOT let it touch the ground.

  • When displaying the flag at night it is supposed to be illuminated.

  • When the flag is lowered to half-staff it is a sign of mourning.

  • How to you fold the flag properly?...

    1. Two person face each other, hold the flag waist high and horizontally between them.
    2. They fold the lower striped section lengthwise, over the blue field. Fold bottom to top holding the edges together securely.
    3. Then fold the flag again, lengthwise, folded edge to open edge.
    4. A triangular fold is then started along the length of the flag, from the end to the heading...this is from the striped end toward the blue field... by bringing the striped corner of the folded edge to meet the open edge.
    5.Outer point is then turned inward parallel with the open edge. This forms a second triangle.
    6. This foring of triangular folds is continued until the entire length of the flag is folded.
    7. When the flag is completely folded only the triangular blue field should be visible.
