It was an ok site but I wished you told me if any company could produce the American Flag. I also wanted to know if the manufacturer has to abide by a certain criteria.

This site is a great service for all americans
John Landers, Oneida, IL. 61467 [12-29-2004]

I enjoy your Website, but I must take exception to your answers concerning what is or is not a flag. The Code plainly states that our flag is 13 stripes of red and white, with 48 stars (updated by common sense to 50 by using Subsection 2)of white on a blue background. If you have an image with 3 stripes and one star, by law you do not have a US flag. Such an image invokes thoughts of the US flag, but cannot be considered our flag, and thus would not violate the Code. (Considering there are no penalties for violating the Code, it really isn't a law anyway, but more a guideline for showing proper respect). Thanks for a great place to get information!

I have read some very good comments above. However, I believe that the webmaster needs to do a better job of eliminating the communist writings, downing the President and this country. Try to locate them by web identification and have them turned over to authorities as communist, denouncing there US citizenship, and traders to the country. As for the few that will take the time to read this, if you feel the way I do, Love your country, the display of this countries flag, and support the commander and chief “ the President” whoever he maybe. Then I and the other free Americans thank you for your support. If you do not like your country, your flag, or the President my suggestion to you is. Contact your local congressman tell him/her that you would like to denounce your US citizenship, go to a local transit place, purchase a ticket and leave this country, so that the freedom my father and the many other fathers and mothers that have bleed and died to provided is not anymore taken so lightly by you. This freedom and not your liberal, antichrist ways is what put that flag, that pledge, and that statement in their places. Leave the currency that you have in your possession behind also. Because if you do not support this country that was founded on GOD and the principles of the King James Bible then you do not need to have our money which states In GOD We Trust. While I am preaching, to the many congressman, judges and any other person in a high position that supports the removal of the Ten Commandments from the court house, the words In GOD We Trust from the US currency and the words One Nation Under GOD from our pledge. Then you too need to board a transit object and get out of the country. This nation was founded by Bible believing, God-fearing people that left England because they where persecuted for believing in God and the freedom to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Yes I agree to disagree that not all things in this country are great like welfare for persons to lazy to get a job, abortion and the many other things that elected official do and say however every night before I lay my head down and sleep under the blanket of freedom that is provided for me by the men and women who died to preserve it. I say a prayer for the President, the many people in charge of the country, that He will grant them the strength to change the things they can, the courage to accept the things they cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference between the two. You too need to pray and ask GOD to provide this. I hear people all the time say GOD Bless America. Well GOD as blessed this country ever sense 1972 when America allied with Israel. That is the only reason this country has been as blessed as it is today and if we do not get our eyes off ourselves and back on GOD we to will be as the Israelites one time were in bondage to the Egyptian people when they thought they did not need GOD and built their tower of babble. GOD punished his chosen people so why would he not justly punish his second choice of people. Yes we the gentiles are a second choice according to the book of Acts when God said “For the heart of this people (Israel) is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the gentiles, and they will hear it”! I thank you for reading this and allowing it to be published to your web page.

Thank-you for this website, it has been a great help to me in my reaserch of the history of the American Flag, for an expository speech in my speech and debate group.
Kelsy J. 7th grade, Memphis, TN USA [12-28-2004]

I'm really grateful for Betsy Ross. I'm really glad that there's not butterflies and flowers all over the flag. I'm doing a history projet on the first American flag and Betsy Ross and there's a lot of stuff that I didn't know.

Ashley, new hampshire [12-19-2004]

Sorry I forgot to ask, Is there any significance to flying the canton only, below the U.S. flag. There is an instance where a fifty star U.S. flag (4'x6') is being flown with an additional canton (20"x24" approx.) of fifty stars below it.
Peter Mackprang, Corona, California [12-19-2004]

Thank you for the site. It is very informative. We do however have a question; A normal configuration has the state flag flying below the U.S. flag on the same staff. When the U.S. flag is flown at half staff is there direction on whether the state flag may still fly below it?
Peter Mackprang, Corona, California [12-19-2004]

Hi, i'm Mandy How are you? i am so inspired of what you do.

Dear Sir/Madam: Thank you for clarity on the meaning of the stripes in the American Flag. I also want to thank you and the founding fathers for giving folks like me the opportunity to be here--to live and make a living in this Democratic Country.

A DAR member just read one of these poems at our DAR Christmas Luncheon Meeting recently. Everyone really enjoyed it. I just had to have a copy to send our son in Ga. He is a family/youth director. My husband and I especially enjoyed a sermon he gave about a year ago to celebrate July 4th. It was entitled, "Let Freedom Ring". He and his wife and oldest daughter made a professional CD for us last Christmas. One of the songs he sang dealt with I am planning on sending him a copy of the poem to include with his sermon the next time he gives it...and I will tell him about the website if he needs any more poems relating to that topic....Thanks for the website!

A Question: It is Pearl Harbor Day - a day that the US Flag should be flown. THe Question is: At full staff or Half Staff such as September 11, 2001 Should I fly my flag at half-mast on September 11? Yes, by proclamation, "I call upon all Americans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes on that day and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent victims who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001." Bush proclamation. Is there such a proclmamtion for Pearl Harbor Day as well?
Richard Margo, Grand Rapids, MI USA [12-07-2004]

Wow i cant belive that she really made that flag. That must have been a pain in the butt. I really liked the five pointed star. I thought that was really cool.

I was wondering if I need to have my flag destroyed if it blew to the ground by wind or if that is not an act of disrespect. My husband, a member of the 82nd ABN DIV, thinks it needs to go, but I feel that it is okay to refly because we didn't disrespectfully drop it to the ground. Someone please email me and let me know. Thanks so much.

I have enjoyed exploring your site. It reinforced my believes in the US. After the resent election and the feelings which have developed that we are a divided nation which can not come together it is good to read the true meaning of patriotism in the US of the 21st Century. It is the same as the founding fathers but we must deal with more diversity within the country.

I am an Englishwoman, married to an American. I now live here in the USA, and my husband proudly flies the 'Star and Stripes' outside our home on special days. An interesting fact regarding the original design for the flag is that it seems to have been based on George Washington's family crest. Of course George's ancestors were English, and one can still visit his ancestral home -Sulgrave Manor, in Northamptonshire, England. It is open to the public, and is a fascinating archive of George's life and that of his forebears. There, above the doorway to the house, carved in stone, are the two or three stars, and a couple of stripes - his family crest!

Dear Ladies/ Gentlemen, In Tulsa, Oklahoma, I had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Wanda K. Ross (descendant of Betsy) for 5 years promoting Betsy, flag history with school children. We rendered American Flags the manner we agreed Betsy would approve of. Inspection by American Veterans, presenting for rendering to twelve (12)female personnel ( chosen by Wanda.) Rendering begins with Canton being cut from the field, starting with the top first stripe continuing to the final red stripe. While discribing to the public significance of each removal of same. Upon rendering same is placed in a special container for removal to a private area. Dark thirty is when we conduct American Flag Disposal. Attendance is by Veterans, with myself as Head Inspector/ Leader Of Disposal Team. Ashes are interred at exact location of Disposal Barrel. Protocal is adhered to with prayers at appropriate intervals. Presently, residing in Liberty, Missouri, life member of Vietnam Veterans Of America. Our chapter has encouraged American Flag Retirement/ Disposal. We have conducted two American Flag Retirements on Veterans Day for the following two (2) years. I have asked a lady veteran I met some seven (7) years hence, to assume the role of Mrs. Betsy Ross. Her heart is good, her spirit is, as we suspect Betsy might have had. She is comfortable in performing the act of flag retirement/ rendering. I am at this time asking for any certificate/ document from The Betsy Ross Society. That is, should there be any such instrument. Your consideration would be greatly appreciated in this regard. Sincerly Yours, Richard Casteel STILL SERVING MY COUNTRY

Don't mean to burst your bubble because you all seem to really love and respect Betsy Ross. However, if you go to this link, You will find that Mary Pickersgill sewed the first flag. I know you don't believe it (I didn't at first), but it is the Smithsonian who says this and they actually own the flag.

We are having a disagreement regarding flying a pennant when we fly our United Sstates Flag. Our home faces the East and my husband & I say the United States Flag should be displayed on the left side of our garage higher than the pennant on the right. This would mean the United States Flag would be on the North & the Pennant would be on the South. Our son said that it doesn't matter. My husband told him that he didn't learn that in the Air Force. Please advise. Thank you, Doris Harrington

As a Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy, I am often dumbfounded by how little many Americans really know about the Flag and the history that accompanies it.

I think you have done an outstanding job embracing this symbolic masterpeice (OUR FLAG). Also, I will be sure to inform all the Scouts in my area of this wonderful resource. Thanks

I typed in the first thing that popped into my head. "American Flag". I'm not sure what made me think of that but it brought me to you and I'm so glad that it did. What an interesting tour and bit of history that you brought to my day. Thank you for this unexpected and pleasant surprise!

Barbara Simmons, orange beach AL [09-16-2004]

I have a question. I just bought a Betsy Ross flag. I have been looking at pictures of differnt Betsy Ross flags on the internet and I have seen two different kinds. On one of the flags (including the one that I bought), the 13 stars always are pointing strait up, i.e., the stars are not turned sideways at all. The other kind of Betsy Ross flag has the stars that point away from the circle, so each star is tilted as it's own angle to make the circle more.... circular. Do you know what I'm talking about? I would really like to know the significance behind this. And what is the original way it was done back when the flag was made? If it was originally made the way that my flag is, then I'll use that one. If not, I'll buy myself the right one! :) Thanks!

In these times of high levels of patriotism, I was curious if my memory served me correctly in US flag etiquette. I found your website to be extremely helpful.

I was surprised to see a link to Flags for Printing and Wallpaper ( Wallpaper on a computer desktop will be covered with icons and files. I know it's picky, but isn't that violating the rules of the flag (sec.8, g)? I respect what you've done here and have your site bookmarked as a reference. Thank you for the great site.

Your site is incorrect about the Texas flag exception. Texas still holds the right to fly their flag at the same height and same size as the US flag. See Texas Flag Code 3100.55 (b)(1) for height rule 3100.55 (b)(2) for size rule The exception is when it is on the same flagpole or flagstaff as the US flag, and then the US flag may be above. Putting them on the same pole is highly discouraged.

What an informative web site! I came looking for the flag as it would appear in 1845, the year my farmhouse was built. I'm having the house and barn painted and asked for a flag to be painted on the barn loft door. The painter suggested a flag the age of the house, and my search brought me here. Now I can't decide between the Bennington flag and the 1845 flag! Have to decide by Monday - I'll let you know! Thanks for all the info - good job! Rita Johnson, Wolfeboro, NH

Dear Sir, I was looking a you page on Flag Rules and Regulations and I noticed what I beleive to be a small error on the page. I have several friends, though I myself don't fully accept their arguements, that actually believe in the Urban legend that a fringed U.S. Flag means that the Constitution is not enforced specifically in court room. According to my Friends it is not martial law that they believe is in effect but Navel Law and though that Commerce Law ( as I vaguely understand it: the Navy had or has the right though common Law and British Law to control shipping and commerce on the high seas therefore it is from Navel Law that the commerce Laws comes from ). I just though you really ought to know about this error so that you can either look into it more closely or correct it as all you are doing by not actually answering the question acuritly is confusing the issue and convincing those that are trying to find the real answer is that you really don't know the answer to that specific question and are fudging it. Sincerely Yours Eric P. Johnson

I was glad i visited. There never seems to be enought said about women that were part of the fight for our independence. Betty Ross was a great inspiration to all women. She was as important as all the other people we seem to think of first. There should be a new movie out on this remarkable women. Women of this day need all the role models they can find.
