Flag rules

Dear Editor:

Please take down your American flag ” the one hanging on the old barn off Brush Creek Road.

When hanging a flag “long ways” the union (field of stars) should always be to the viewer’s left. Yours is on the viewer’s right (backward).

If you are leaving the American flag up all the time, it is customary to light the flag from sundown to sunup. Yours is not.

When a flag becomes faded and ripped such as yours, you must take it down and dispose of it properly.
