What do you use to hang a flag on a wall?
Use 2 or 3 Command Hooks made by 3M and put them on the wall. Then sew some loops on the back of the flag to so put onto the hooks. Command hooks are designed to be removed without the wall being damaged. You can also glue a craft rod or similar to the top of the flag before hanging it on the hooks to avoid sagging.
Is it disrespectful to hang a flag on a wall?
Don’t hang your flag backwards, upside down, or in another inappropriate fashion. If you’re hanging your flag vertically (like from a window or against a wall), the Union portion with the stars should go on the observer’s left. Never dip the flag to any person or anything.
How do you hang an American flag on a wall?
The union should always be displayed in the upper left corner of the American flag. According to the U.S. Flag Code, the proper way to hang a U.S. flag from a wall is to always keep the union on the observer’s left. For example, when the flag is displayed horizontally, the stars will be in the uppermost left corner.
What side do you hang a flag vertically?
Hang flag vertically with the canton farthest from the building. The union, or star field, should always be at the top and should be on the flag’s own right (the viewer’s left). When being hung over a street, the union should ideally point north or east.
Can you staple a flag to the wall?
No. It is not disrespectful to hand an American flag on a wall, as long as it is hung correctly. The flag can be hung horizontally, or vertically. But no matter the orientation, the blue field with stars should be positioned in the top left corner.
What are 3 things you should never do to the flag?
The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored so that it might be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
Why is it disrespectful to have a flag touch the ground?

Are you supposed to take the flag down when it rains?
The U.S. Flag Code addresses the rules for flying flags, rain or shine. The United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, states: “The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed.”
Is it illegal to hang the flag upside down?

Why do they unfold and fold the flag at a military funeral?
The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life. The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life. The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.
How do you display the American flag on a house?

When should you hang a flag?

Can other flags be flown with the US flag?
