Terry Brown: Flag code clarification

March 11, 2019

Editor: To the US Army vet from this US Navy vet, I respect you but your info on the use of your flag is a little incorrect. According to 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. Jun 14, 2011. Also according to Farmers Almanac, the custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on a flagstaff in the open, but it may be displayed at night if illuminated to produce a patriotic effect. Please continue to enjoy our flag and thanks for serving.
