Did you remember to fly your flag today?

I used to be the only one in the neighborhood who flew the flag. Then came 9/11 and several other neighbors flew a flag. I wore out 2 flags over the next two years.

Today I have our flag our for the 4th, and the only other neighbors who fly the flag on our block are from England!

We fly ours every day and so does our next-door neighbor. Several others on our street are flying today.

Yep! We had a flagpole installed a few weeks ago, finally! Need a breeze, but it's still pretty.

Mine has been up for a couple of weeks. My flag is getting faded. I purchased it in the spring of 2001 and flew it every day after 9/11 for about a year or so.

We fly ours every day along with the Texas flag, and yes, they are both lit properly at night.

A big salute to terilyn,,,

As a vet, and one who was taught the proper respect for how to fly the flag, there is nothing I hate worse than to see a flag on top of the pole on a dark night.

Properly a flag should be flown from sunup till sundown..and it may only be flown after sundown if it is illuminated.

Ours is up every day of the year and down at night (no light on it, that's the only reason, I guess.)

NICE PHOTO, flamingo!

Looks a lot like ours in our front yard...we love to see it 'blowin' in the wind' as we come and go.

Thanks for sharing all!

I found the cutest solar light stakes in the shape of small flags at RKO this year. I also bought two for my aunt. The solar light even lit up being quite near my porch hung with bunting and with the porch light on.

We fly the flag daily and have been doing so for about 30 years. At a previous home, the flag pole was in the front yard and I raised the flag at dawn and took it in before dark. Our flag now is on a porch post and is lit at night.

I didn't know that flags should be taken down at sunset, unless lit. Thanks for the lesson in flag etiquette.

Beautiful flag Flamingo.

KayJones, hugs to your son.
