            Great Subs @ SUBMARINA - Hemet
As Flag Day was yesterday and 4th of July is approaching I felt it would be wise to list how to properly handle the U.S. flag.  Listed below is the recognized way to handle the U.S. flag. 

1.  The U.S. flag is usually flown from sunrise to sunset.

2.  In the morning raise the flag briskly, in the evening lower the flag slowly. Always raise and lower the flag with respect.

3.  The flag should be illuminated when flown at night. 

4.  The flag should not be flown in rain or inclement weather.

5.  After a tragedy or death the flag is flown at half staff for 30 days. 

6.  When flown vertically on a flagpole the stars and blue field are at the top and end of the flag pole.

7.  The American flag is always flown at the top of the flagpole.  State and other flags are flown below.

8.  The stars are always on top.  When displayed in print the stars and blue field are always on the left.

9.  The flag should never touch the ground.

10. When storing fold the flag.

11. When retiring a flag the flag should should not be thrown away, preferrably burned.
