 Proper Etiquette for Flying the American Flag                   The U.S. flag code says…

-The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement.

-The custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on flagstaffs in the open,

but it may be displayed at night—if illuminated—to produce a patriotic effect.

-When the flag is hung vertically on a wall, window, or door, the Union (blue section) should be to the observer’s left. When the flag is hung either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the Union should be to the observer’s left.
