American pride, done right

Ever since Betsy Ross made the first flag in 1776, ?Old Glory? has flown from rooftops and flagpoles, from border to border and coast to coast. Considering all that has happened, and with more flags being displayed than ever before, it's important we display with proper respect. Here are some star-spangled "manners.? The ?Union? (or blue field) always goes upper left, hung vertically, out in the open; the union faces North or East. Over a sidewalk, it goes farthest from the building. With other flags, the U.S. flag always is highest and, when flown from and automobile, the flag is always on the right or passenger side. Finally, when it becomes worn and tattered, a flag never should be "thrown away," but rather ?disposed of? with respect. Most American Legion posts and Boy Scout troops conduct ceremonies for this purpose. For more tips (and even info on building a flag pole), visit our Web site at onthehouse.com. Click on tip of the day, Holiday tips, and "flag pole." And that's the On The House tip for today.
