Flag Etiquette states that our flag should fly high, higher than any other flag, it should be properly illuninated at night and take in during foul weatheer. Display and handling on certain days, such as federal holidays, birthdays of presidents are especially important. The American Flag is not to be worn as a garment, it should fly high and never touch the ground, and if our flag needs to be retired it should be disposed of in a dignified manner, with all due respect, destroyed preferably by burning, which is ususally done on the 14th of June at any American Legion Post.
