Protect Our Flag
The National Flag represents the living country and is considered to be a living thing emblematic of the respect and pride we have for our nation. Our flag is a precious possession. Display it proudly.
There are certain fundamental rules of Heraldry which, if understood, generally indicate the proper method of displaying the flag. The right arm, which is the sword arm and the point of danger, is the place of honor. Hence, the union of the flag is the place of honor or the honor point.
The National Emblem is a symbol of our great country, our heritage and our place in the world. We owe reverence and respect to our flag.
It represents the highest ideals of individual liberty, justice and equal opportunity for all.
