Flag Etiquette
In the 1976 revision of the Flag Code by Congress, the symbolism of the United State flag is considered to be a living symbol representing a living country.  This reference was added in response to the strong feelings of respect and reverence accorded by many of our citizens.  In addition, the flag represents the many freedoms, rights, and responsibilities not entrusted to the citizens of any other country in the world.  Therefore, the proper display and use of the United States flag is the responsibility of every American citizen.
