Standards of Respect—Flag Protocol


What order should we fly the flags of the United States, Washington state, or our Organization?  What is the correct order to fly the flags of Military branches?  Join us in October and learn the proper way to present the colors and teach us about flag protocol standards of respect for our meetings and events.  You will learn how to display the United States flag properly in general, and with State flags, and with flags of various Organizations; as well as with flags of other Nations; how to properly display flags on speaker’s platforms at meetings and events; the protocol of flying flags over a street, at half staff, or on a casket; and how to raise and lower a flap properly, fold and store a flag properly, and display a flag in the proper manner.
