Discussions of Flag Protocol.

Dixie Flag Manufacturing Company, one of the nation's most respected flag companies, is often asked to guide customers on the proper etiquette for displaying the American flag. Many people purchasing flags to demonstrate patriotism are unaware of the specific guidelines that surround acceptable flag display, particularly when flags of multiple regions or associations are displayed.

Pete Van de Putte, Dixie Flag's President, offers the following advice: "There are a lot of subtle nuances surrounding how the American flag should be displayed that many people have never had the opportunity to learn." One such guideline is that the only time another flag should be placed above or on level with the U.S. flag is when church services are conducted by naval chaplains at sea. Van de Putte also explained, "As we saw with Patriot Day on Sept. 11, many Americans were eager to display flags in their homes or businesses, and the correct display makes the act even more honorable."

Dixie Flag offers all types and sizes of flags for display in homes, businesses, vehicles and military locations, indoors and outdoors, as well as a vast selection of historic, international and religious flags.
