Wave an American Military Flag in honor of our veterans
Fly the American Flag and Military Flags to honor our veterans.
Be sure to thank a Veteran this weekend for their service and sacrifice. Remember to display your pride and appreciation, with an outdoor flag, a desk display, or waving a mini-flag at a parade,
On November 11, we celebrate Veterans Day in honor of our brave American soldiers who have served this great nation during times of both war and peace. Whether you are Active Duty, a Veteran, supporting a loved one or are an ordinary American, flying military flags along-side your American flag is a great way to express your pride, patriotism, and gratitude.
Outdoor flags are durably constructed, allowing them to be flown outdoors year-round. Smaller outdoor flags are suitable to fly from a residential pole or yard pole of an appropriate design, and larger flags are available for corporate and municipal buildings with commercial-grade flagpoles. Any outdoor flag may also be used indoors and hung as a flat wall display.
LIBERTY Ceremonial Flags feature a golden fringe as a formal, ornamental decoration. Unlike outdoor flags, Ceremonial Flags are designed to be displayed on an indoor display stand, unless they are being flown in a parade or Color Guard ceremony. A Parade Belt is required for outdoor display.
In what order should you display your Military Flags?
Whether they are being marched in a parade or flown outside a home or Government building, there is a specific order in which all flags must be displayed.
Yes, there may be a few exceptions (see Displaying Military Flags) when it comes to displaying Military Flags, but according to the Department of Defense guidelines, the order of precedence for flag display is as follows:
- First: The Flag of the United States of America. If displayed with other flags, the American Flag should always be larger than the other flags or relatively the same size as the largest flag. If the flags are displayed together on poles or display stands, the American flag should always be flown higher than the other flags or displayed on the (flag’s own) right
- Second: State Flags are flown in alphabetical order
- Third: Military Flags are flown in order of establishment: (1) Army Flag, (2) Marine Corps Flag,(3) Navy Flag, (4) Air Force Flag, and (5) Coast Guard Flag
- Forth: Other flags representing municipalities, cities, organizations, etc.
