Treat American flag with respect
As spring turns into summer in York Township, I cannot help but view June and July with “patriotic” eyes. In honor of our observation of Flag Day on June 14 and of Independence Day on July 4, I would like to share with you some etiquette or standards of respect for our nation’s flag.
The National Flag Code was adopted at the National Flag Conference on June 14, 1923, for the purpose of providing guidance, based on U.S. Army and Navy procedures, relating to display of and associated questions about the U.S. flag.
In 1942, Congress passed a joint resolution and the Flag Code became federal law. As a result, exact rules for use and display of the flag are included in the U.S. Code – 36 USC 176 deals specifically with respect for the flag and contains instructions on how the flag is not to be used.
