Before buying American flags for sale online, there are a few “rules” in the U.S. Flag Code that homeowners and business owners often overlook. The highlights of this well-known “code” were recently featured in a few news articles as a reminder to Americans that there are “rules” concerning the flying of the American flag. Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to look at the United States Flag Code to be sure you’re giving the Stars and Stripes the proper respect.
According to the U.S. Flag Code, the American flag should only be displayed between sunrise and sunset, but it can also be displayed around the clock when a “patriotic effect” is desired. The only special guideline here is that that the flag be properly illuminated once the sun goes down.
People start thinking about buying American flags for sale online when they start planning their Memorial Day weekend. The image of the Stars and Stripes is so closely associated with this holiday, as well as Flag Day and the Fourth of July, and a brand new flag is the perfect way to spruce up your home for the spring season. Be sure to display your new flag on other special holidays such as Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Martin Luther King Day and President’s Day. Many people have started flying the flag on September 11th in recognition of Patriot’s Day, but you never need a “reason” to fly the American flag. Homeowners and business owners often fly the flag all year round because it is an ever-present reminder of their patriotism.
If you want to shop in a place that has the largest selection of American flags for sale online, then you only need to remember one website – FlagPro.com. FlagPro is the ecommerce storefront for the Advertising Flag Company, a manufacturer and purveyor of fine flags and banners since 1936.
