How to Raise and Lower your Flag 

Your flag should be raised briskly and lowered slowly and ceremoniously. Our national flag should be displayed on all days that there is no danger that the weather will damage it. It not only shows respect for our national symbol, but prolongs the life of the flag. It is customary to fly the flag from sunrise to sunset on buildings or on a stationary flag pole in the open. However, it may also be flown at night if it is properly illuminated with a spot light. The flag of the United States of America is saluted as it is hoisted and lowered. The salute is held until the flag is unsnapped from the halyard or through the last note of music, whichever is the longest.
