The American flag, a symbol of our country’s triumph over oppression and our dream of freedom, was honored on a set of four 2008 U.S. postage stamps.  The set, titled “American Flag 24/7,” shows the American flag at four different times of day – sunrise, noon, sunset, and night. 

In 1942, Congress issued a set of guidelines detailing the proper treatment of our nation’s most sacred banner.  According to the code, when the flag is raised on the pole (normally at sunrise) it should be raised quickly and be properly saluted.  On Memorial Day, the flag is flown at half mast until noon, and then raised to full mast until sunset.  To do this properly, the flag should first be hoisted quickly to full mast, and then be drawn down respectfully to half mast.  Then at noon, it should once again be briskly raised to full mast. 

When taking the flag down at sunset, it should be lowered slowly and ceremoniously.  The common civilian tradition is to play “Taps” and place one’s right hand over the heart.  While the code states that the flag should be taken down at night, it is acceptable to leave it flying if it is properly lit.  Because “this flag dips to no earthly king,” the flag is never to be dipped to any person or thing.  It should never be used for any advertising purposes, placed on anyting that is intended to be discarded, or have any marks made on it.
