Flag Highlights: How To Display the Flag--part 4

We will be offering a series of blogs that highlight different traditions, facts and important information about the United States Flag.These informational facts were taken from a Brochure published in 1966 and found at the Daughters of the Utah Pioneer Museum located next to the Utah State Capitol building.

When Hung Flat
When the flag of the United States is displayed in a manner other than by being flown from a staff it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or outdoors.
When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, i.e., the observer's left. When displayed in a window it should be the same way.
The flag should never be draped or used as a decoration to replace bunting.

All words, grammar and word usage, has been taken directly from this 1966 brochure.
