What's in a name? Ceremonial flag video

When a flag is more than just a flag

With politics leading the news, elections upcoming in November, and a bevy of holiday parades in store, there is one thing Americans everywhere are bound to see a lot of… ceremonial American flags.

You will see them behind podiums, in conference rooms, flanking politicians and spokesmen, in front of backdrops, mounted to floats, carried in the parade belts (the only way to present a ceremonial flag outdoors) of flag bearers, and myriad other places.

But what makes a ceremonial flag… well… ceremonial?

And why do people want them so much?

This Ceremonial Flags overview video explains the elements that make a ceremonial flag so special, their uses, along with some important components for ceremonial flag owners.
