As the Veterans 35'- 40' 6x10' Service Officer of 45' 8x12' Walsh County and a veteran, I remind,you to 50'- 60' 10x15' check your flag. In town 65' - 75' 1Ox19' or 12x18' and throughout the 75'-100' 15x25' county, Old Glory waves proudly, but I 105'-120' 20x30' have noticed many flags" 125' - 150' 20x38' with tears and faded colors among residential 155' - 200' 30x50' and commercial busi- % 200 ' 30x60' nesses alike. The flag, when it js in such condition that it is no longer a fitting em- blem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. American Legion posts and Boy Scouts of America are very active in Walsh County and perform this ceremony at least once a year. There is a drop box for unserviceable flags outside the Administra- tive Building in Grafton for anyone wanting to properly dispose of their flag. Conditions of deterioration include fading, shredding ripping, dirt and grime that cannot be cleaned, and torn or damaged halyards and grommets that cannot be repaired. So if you have a neighbor, friend, or relative that displays the Stars and Stripes, make sure they proper- ly dis/l,and replace it whenever it becomes unserviceable. A i o United States Code Title 36 Chapter 10 (The Flag Code), (a) .universal CUStom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and'on stationary flag staffs in the open. Howev- er, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twen- ty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of dark- ness. (b) The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. (c) The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is in- clement, except when an all-weath flag is displayed. Finally, be sure to display the proper size and type of flag, i.e, all- weather, outdoor, indoor, etc. More information about the United States Flag can be found at and more information about purchasing a flag can be found at or http://www.get- Flag Pole/Flag ratio For an outdoor flag on an in-ground flag pole the most common way to size your flag is by the height of the pole. The length of the flag should be at least 1/4 theheight of the pole. For a pole that attaches to your house we recommend a 2.5x4' flag on a 5' flag pole, or a 3x5' on a 6' pole. The biggest factor in hanging these flags is that you don't want the flag to touch anything (bushes, trees, gutters, siding, door knobs, etc.) when it flies. Anything touching the flag will shorten the life by caus- ing early wear and tear on the flag. To get the flag but away from Be house try our 8' poles which fit into all the same brackets as the smaller Ones but protect your flag better.
