NEW YORK, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Spinal Association (http://www.UnitedSpinal.org) in recognition of Veterans Day 2008, is offering free instructions on "How to Display Our Flag" and do it correctly.
When we view the flag, we think of freedom, liberty, and pride. It flies on both Poles, the moon, and sits atop Mount Everest.
Most Americans view the flag in all its majesty flying in the wind from a flagpole. However, there is a proper time and way to raise and lower the flag on a daily basis as well as on special occasions.
There are many other scenarios in which the flag is presented including displays with one or more flags, on a staff, suspended from a window, hanging horizontally, as bunting, on a casket or in procession.
There are also instructions on how to address and honor the flag during various ceremonies, all of which can be found online in English and Spanish in the publications section of http://www.UnitedSpinal.org.
