Military Branches Enblems

Flag Disposal Ceremony taking place in Windsor Vermont, Americans are incredibly Patriotic folks. We like our apple pie, baseball and blue jeans. So, in order to not unconsciously insult us Red Blooded Americans, its sure best that you brush up on your US Flag Etiquette. First of all, let’s make sure that even though you have not attended a history class in many moons, you still know what the US Flag represents. The red and white horizontal stripes stand for the Thirteen Original Colonies. The white stars in the blue corner (the union) represent the Fifty States of the US.



US Flag etiquette states our Flag should never be used for decoration. Red, white and blue striped decorations (called bunting) can be used instead; the blue stripe should be at the top. Nothing should ever be attached to the US Flag and the Flag should never be attached to a uniform, unless it is the uniform of someone in the Military, a Firefighter, Policeofficer or a member of a patriotic organization.



No disrespect should be shown to the Flag of the United States of America. Section 8


Our Flag represents a living Country and is itself considered a living thing. Section 8j
