2008 42¢ Flag at Night
American Flags 24/7
 
Issue Date: April 18, 2008
City: Washington, DC
Printed By: Ashton-Potter
Printing Method: Lithographed
Perforations: 9½ Die Cut
Color: Multicolored
 
The Star Spangled Banner, a high-flying emblem of hope and unity, was honored on a set of 2008 U.S. postage stamps titled American Flag 24/7, showing the American flag at different times of day. Three printers produced these flags in three different coil sizes. This stamp is part of a coil of 100. 
 
Established by Congress in 1942, the American Flag Code is a series of rules concerning the treatment of one of our nation’s most revered and respected symbols. The code states that out of respect for the flag, it should be taken down at night or in times of inclement weather, unless it can be properly lit. Ideally, the flag should be lit with its own bright light, but it is most important that if flown at night, it can be seen clearly.
 
The principle belief stressed in the Flag Code is that the flag be treated with respect and dignity, and all attempts are made to keep it from being harmed in any way. In the event that the flag is damaged or irreparable, it should be disposed of in a dignified manner (usually by burning).
 
By order of the President, acts of Congress, and custom, there are a number of places where the American flag should be flown year-round. These places include the White House and the Washington Monument. Also, replicas of the Star Spangled Banner are flown at the Fort McHenry National Monument and Flag House Square, both in Baltimore, Maryland.
