Timely hints from the federal government? Yes, very much so as July Fourth looms. USA.gov — a wide-ranging compendium of information about the government and its workings — offers a page dedicated to the American flag and its protocol.
“The U.S. flag stands for our nation and the shared history, pride, principles and commitment of its people. When we properly display this powerful symbol, we signal our respect for everything it represents,” advises a helpful infographic based on the U.S. Flag Code.
There are historic details which should be revisited from time to time. “The colors on the flag represent: Red: valor and bravery; White: purity and innocence; Blue: vigilance, perseverance, and justice,” the site says.
