Just stopped by to get the regs on flags. Locally there are many flying, and I just wanted to confirm my understanding of how and when.
Matt Piszel, Hellertown, PA [09-21-2001]

Wonderful website. Very informative and especially useful at this time in our lives. I wanted to display our flag appropriately and your website definitely gave that information. I hope that many, many people find and use the information you have provided;(I will send this link to everyone I know). My thoughts and prayers are constantly with those who were lost in the attacks and with their families as they deal with this unspeakable horror. And we all need to be constantly in prayer for our President,leaders and armed services as they go forward to protect our freedom, something that becomes more precious with each passing day.
Carol J. Donaldson, Whitehouse, OH [09-21-2001]

Beautiful site-Bookmarked, esp for the grand kids !
Rob Carter, Huntington Beach, CA [09-21-2001]

Is it true? I heard a rumor that you have flags for sale; that you haven't run out yet and that you are having a special "something" this weekend. I wanted to make sure before I traveled down there. Thanks in advance for letting me know.
Jill, Valley Forge, PA [09-21-2001]

I am a high school student council advisor. As a leader of students, one of my first reactions to our recent American tragedy was to buy each student at my high school an American flag. After a few phone calls on Weds. Sept. 12, 2001, we contacted the Walmart in Lunenburg, Ma. and they agreed to order for our schooln 1,400 4" x 6" flags; one for each student in our school. We hand delivered the check for over $600.00 that same evening. They said that they had enough flags in their warehouse and they would be in in 1-2 days. We called them (after they had our money) every day to determine when we could plan our distribution of flags ceremony to the student body. This past Mon. (9/17), they told me that they were certain that our order would be in at anytime. Tuesday morning, when I called, the manager was unavailable. The secretary told me when I asked about our shipment, that the store would not be getting anymore flags and that they had received a shipment of flags in on Mon. night and that they had sold tham within 2 hours of receiving them. I believe that they sold our flags. Walmart told me that they would not be able to get us our flags. The mangaer will not return my calls. Do you know of any vender who we could order flags from. We realize that it might take some time, however, I still feel strongly that I would like to give each student in my school an American flag. Please help. Thank you.
Beth Ann Hague, Ashby, Massachusetts [09-21-2001]

I can never remember a time in my life that I have personally felt such patriotism; nor do I recall a time I have seen such patriotism by my fellow Americans. It is terribly sad that it took such a horrible tragedy for our nation to come together as one, however, I hope it is just the begining of what we, as Americans, can do to unite and overcome the evil that has occured.
Kimberly Williamson, Williamsburg, Virginia, USA [09-21-2001]

kayla, maryland [09-21-2001]

I recently returned this year to the US after living 10 years in an Islamic country. I can not begin to explain how grateful I am to be an American. I have security in knowing that my country has allowed me to be free. What does the flag mean to me? It is the picture of my home. It is the guarantee of all the rights that I enjoy as an American citizen. Our country is the only country that people risk their lives to get into. Nobody dies trying to leave the USA. I shudder to think what our world would be like without a strong America. Diane Conti Native New Yorker, Republican, and Very Proud American
Diane Conti, Riverview, FL 33569 [09-21-2001]

Great website. Thank you! I wish all Americans would visit this site, especially now in the face of possible WAR. So many people are sticking the American Flag on the backs of their trucks and cars. So many people don't lower the flag at the end of the day, and leave it out in the dark all night. Very sad...sigh Anyway, I enjoy this site. It's GREAT to be an AMERICAN!
Wendy Dauderman, Fresno, CA, U.S.A. [09-21-2001]

By viewing this page,I got many answers to questions. In the wake of our nation's tragedy and renewed patriotism and the flying of the colors, I am now aware of mistakes many people are making. I was unsure if I remembered how to fold the flag correctly. I was right and that made me feel good. I feel now that more Americans will really understand what the flag represents! May they also really listen to the words of our national anthem! Our nation is strong, we WILL prevail!

I am so very proud to be an American. I thought I always was a proud American,after this I know how much I am!!! My prayer is for our young generation. They have never known war and the price we had to pay for the freedom we enjoy.Some of the interviews of our college students have been very upsetting .I pray they now realize what an American has to do to keep his freedom. God bless us as we make a Stand to keep it!!! God comfort the families of the fallen.
Sherryl Fulton, Weatherford Texas [09-21-2001]

In the wake of the horrendous evil act by terrorist in our homeland, America was awaken by a second Pearl Harbor day. Let's ask GOD to help us to face back those evil perpetrators who hated us by killing our own innocense brothers and sisters on Sept 11, 2001. My prayers goes to all those families and friends who lost their beloved ones in New York City & Washington DC. This is a great nation! Let's show the world AMERICA is a great country....GOD BLESS USA & all of us!

Why do we have a flag and the american Indians don't? Weren't they on these grounds before we descovered America? Didn't we take their land away from them or do I just don't understand? Please explain.
anonymous, Auberry california [09-21-2001]

what is the protocol on USING a flag that was used and continues to be folded from my father's casket. It is a struggle to know whether I would even want to use it but I think he would be proud if it were flown in light of the present situation...would surely like some feedback...Thanks

Hello: We are having a hard time finding a US flag in our city. We are interested in making our own and have picked out the fabric for it. Our question is we are thinking about a 3ft wide by 8 ft long flag, how big do we make the stars for it and is that a good demsion to make it? Thank you for your time!

britty, newport,maine usa [09-19-2001]

Thank you for the info on flag rules and regulations. I am looking for a paper on what every fold in the flag means. I know that each time you fold the flag in a triangle, it stands for something, but I do not remember what each one means. I am just sorry it took a tragic thing like this to bring out our Americanism. I have been marching in American Legion Color Guard for about 7 years now and we have won State Championship for the last 10 years in parade and when they had field competition.

in this time of sorrow for our country we are grateful to the lasting symbol created by Betsy Ross. all Americans are proudly flying the red white and blue in some way and hope in our hearts that our leaders will restore our sense of safety. God Bless America and all of us.
Charlotte Katz, Ocala, FL [09-19-2001]

I was designated Connecticut's first "Official State Troubadour" in 1991. As a response to the recent terrorist attacks on America, I have written a song entitled "These Colors just Don't Run!". The chorus is: These colors, these colors, these colors just don’t run! Since Betsy Ross first stitched ‘em up for General Washington. They’ve stood against both King & Crown, and petty tyrants too. These colors stand in war and peace, our own red, white and blue! It's posted on our Crackerbarrel Entertainments website at http://crackerbarrel-ents.com/tom_flag_lyrics.htm Best - Tom Callinan

After the awful tradgedy happened in the state of New York, a few of us teachers decided to take patriotism into our classrooms and teach our students more about the american flag. I stumbled across this site and was amazed at the abundance of information. I have spent hours viewing and printing all of the information. I especially liked the flag wallpaper for the desktop of my computer. Thank you so much for making this site available! Sincerely, Rachel McDaniel, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Planning our trip to visit all of this blessed history. This is a great site to find as I clicked through to finalize our plans. How great all our history seems, always; it is especially precious after the tragedies of this last week. May God continue to bless this great nation and to be with our leaders as they make monumentous decisions over these days. We have our flags flying to designate our support for our leaders, the search teams, the ones who lost their lives and all of the grieving families.

The Reverend Allen D. Minter, Fairfax, VA [09-19-2001]

Hi, Retired U.S.Navy. Took part in many "Morning Colors" abosrd ship and shore billets. I have been displaying our National Ensign every day since becoming a civilian. The recent terrible tragedy has prompted more people in the sub-division,where we live to display their flag,some of which had never done so. We have an all weather flag and as of last friday it remains displayed day and night. I recently rigged up a floodlight to illuminate and enhance the beauty of our flag during the hours of darkness. Great website. Regards,Charlie
Charles A. Jacobus, Auburndale, Florida [09-19-2001]

I am proud to be a citizen of this great country. My husband, father, and brother (all deceased) served our country during World Wars I & II. They would be saddened to know of this terrible tragedy. My great, great grandparents were among the early settlers and suffered great hardships as they helped create a country that has respected and valued its people. Throughout the history of our country, we have evidence of the ability of our citizens to unite and overcome crises. We will again. Thanks for helping us remember who we are.

Have you ever heard of a Betsy Ross Flag Club? Recently while going through family items we found a box of items beloning to my father's great aunt. Most of the items in the box dated around 1917 and there is a certificate showing she was a member of the "original flag makers" Betsy Ross flag group. Do you know what this group was and when it was formed? I didn't get a good look at the certificate but am planning on pulling it back out and trying to trace it as now I am curious.
Ruth, Omaha, NE [09-19-2001]

This is a very informative site. I often see the flag being displayed as clothing or soaking wet in a rainstorm and it breaks my heart to see such disrespect, maybe now that our nation has suffered such a tragedey and the flag is being displayed everywhere, people will think twice about how they are displaying the symbol of our nation. And let us not forget the strong christian values this country was based on. God bless America! Calandra
Calandria D Loe, Fernwood, Idaho [09-19-2001]

After the tradegy just a short week ago, my love and respect for the U.S. Flag is overwhelming. I was born at the end of December, 1940 and we were taught by our parents, relatives, teachers, and neighbors to respect the United States Flag. It makes me proud to be an American and I want my three grandchildren to feel the same way. They will, because their parents are teaching them! I have been saying for the past few years that we don't have the Patriosm in our country that we had when I was growing up and it makes me very sad that it isn't display as much as it should be! I live on a very nice street but only three flags are up to show our respect for the victims and their families, not to mention the firefighters, policemen, and volunteers that are doing a superb job of trying to find our people that were lost at the Pentagon and The World Trade Center. Wake up Americans and be proud...sing the National Anthem when you are at a baseball game, put your hand over your heart and be proud! Listen to Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The U.S.A." and teach your children and grandchildren all of our "American songs!".

Natalie, Texas, YSA [09-19-2001]

Hello, I am a sixth grade teacher, and I was looking for ways to bring my students in on the recent tragedy affecting America today. I thought an excellant approach would be to tell the history of our flag, and to have them make a flag to demonstrate our patriotism for our country. Seeing as it is very difficult to buy flags during this time, I thought it would be fun to engage my students in the making of our flag. I will also have them write one reason why they are proud to be an American to be attached to the flag.

Great website, I am going to send it out to many. In the past, my husband and I have been saying we would like to purchase a flag for our home. At this time, I think it is very important to do this, any suggestions as to where we might purchase one, I know supply is in demand.

Leona B. Raney, Jackson, New Jersey, USA [09-19-2001]

i think we all lost track of our patriotism until sept. 11 2001, a day with all its destruction and terror. A new generation of patriots was born on that day, the younger people who had basically no idea of the true meaning of our flag and what it represents. Don't ever lose track of what our flag stands for... God Bless America!!

Thank you so much for providing both the wallpaper and the printable flag. With the current shortages of flags it's nice to be able to show our support in some small way. It is bitter-sweet to see so many flags now. I think this week is the first time in my life that the mere sight of the flag could move me to tears. Tears of terrible sadness, great strength and pride, unity and fear for what we may have to endure to keep her flying. Thank you again and God Bless the U.S.A.

Jerry Crowe, Fresno CA [09-19-2001]

In light of the recent terrorist attack in New York and the shortage of flags in stores, I am forced to print a copy of the flag from this site and display it in my window. I am glad to have visited this site and learn more about the regulations of displaying the flag. What a terrible time our nation is in, I am sure that the strength, spirit and vitality of the American people will survive this tragedy. I am afraid for people of Arab, or Middle East descent as there have been unprovoked attacks on them. It is important for all of to remember that even though someone my not be of anglo descent they have come to America to enjoy that which we all so dearly cherish, have fought and will fight to protect. Freedom. Freedom from oppression and persecution. Let us not persecute those who have come to America for the very same reasons our ancestors did. We need to support them and reach out to them. If Middle Eastern descent people are attacked, it makes me feel that somehow the terrorists have won -
