VFW offers flag etiquette reminder
The Memorial Day holiday is observed May 28. Guidelines from the Veterans of Foreign Wars for displaying the United States flag are as follows:
- A flag displayed on a car should be fastened to the right side bumper, antenna or to the window.
- If displaying a flag on a wall, the blue field should be in the upper left corner, and it should never touch the ground
- When displaying an all-weather flag outdoors 24 hours a day, there should be a light near it at night so it is not in complete darkness
- When the flag becomes worn, replace it.
