WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and Vito Pinto, head of Westchester’s Veterans Service Agency, reminds county residents of proper American flag etiquette as they enter into one of the most patriotic weekends of the year.

The American flag:

  • Should only be displayed from sunrise to sunset. However, when patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed 24-hours a day if properly illuminated during hours of darkness.
  • Should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. Should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed. 
  • Should not be dipped to any person or thing.
  • Should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor or water.
  • Should never be flown or placed below another flag.
  • Should always be on the flag’s own right (observer’s left) when against a wall and in the center and at the highest point when a number of flags are grouped and displayed from staffs.
  • When displayed vertically against a wall, the union or flag’s blue field should be uppermost in the flag’s top right corner (observer’s top left corner).
  • Should never have placed upon it any mark, insignia, letter, work, figure, picture or drawing of any nature.
  • When it is in damaged condition and no longer fit for display should be destroyed in a dignified way. The best thing to do is to take the flag to the local American Legion or VFW post.
  • When the pledge is recited or national anthem is played all citizens should stand at attention and face the flag with their right hand on their heart. Men not in uniform should remove hats or other headdress during the playing of the national anthem.
