Hutch, usa [12-31-2007]

i was reading a book called Who Cracked The Liberty Bell and other questions about the american revolution to my mom and grandpa. i came across a chapter that says did betsy ross really sew the first flag of the United States?At the end of the chapter it read " do you think betsy ross created the first flag of the United States?i thought no because she was young when she created a flag for general washington.so i tried the computer and it said she did.

Great site. I'll be sure to come again for research for school.
Sarah Paterson [12-18-2007]

Was just visiting up here in PA. and was traveling in what I think is in Mechanicsburg, PA. on Carlisle Pike. Noticed that a School with a big Football Staduim along the road had a flag left out in the big ice storm we just had up here in PA. Wipping around on the pole like a fish on a fishing pole. The next day traveling in the same area I noticed that now the flag was gone but now was laying on the ground and bush near by. Our flag was their all day and probably still their. It's sad to see that this school has no justification for our country and those who have died or faught for our colors and our poeple. Really think that something should be done. Don't think that they should of left the flag out their overnight in this ice storm. Someone should be held responsible for this major mistake. Thanks, Dave. GOD BLESS AMERICA and THOSE WHO HAVE FAUGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY.
Dave Knox, Hagerstown, MD. [12-18-2007]

You say the flag decals (say on the backs of football helmets or on shoulders of work shirts) are considered flags, but they are put where they often get dirty and come in contact with the ground. How is this contradiction resolved?

What an informative site. I got the answer to my question which is the display of the American flag on the upper arm of the U. S. Army uniform. They display the flag flat (#8), but the Union is to the observers'RIGHT. I recently questioned a soldier re: this and he responded that it because "it is unfurled." (as in a procession). Am I wrong in this observation? Please respond, if you will, to my E-mail address. Respectfully, Anne

A good, informative site. It's too bad that we don't know more about the person that designed the flag that we see daily, that represents our nation. I was able to get all reauired information here. Thanks!

Why do the troops in Iraq wear the union to the left and the star field on the upper right. (facing the flag brassard) I was taught that the star field was always to be on the upper left.( facing the Brassard)
Franny, Sun City, Az. [12-08-2007]

If the Washington Redskins lowered their American Flag to half staff for Sean Taylor's death, should it be on this hall of shame??! And if so, did someone get a picture of it. I read that a van was in the parking lot with an American Flag at Half staff. Just curious and no disrespect to Sean Taylor's death intended.

My mother is Martha Griscom Strain. My Grandfather was Milton VanDyke Griscom. A Griscom relative found articles and then we did the math, and I am the 14th cousin of Betsy Griscom Ross.

You post this or not as it is not about Betsy Ross. I think you should make a slight change to your guest book. Although the information is optional You should consider not posting people's email addresses. With the growing spam problem and illegal sale to spammers of email addersses, you are contributing to the problem by giving away your visitors email addresses. Again I know it is not required to post to the guestbook.

Page was very informative. Post 109 does a Veteran of the Month Ceremony each month with 5 x 9 Burial Flags and a Dignified Unservicabile Flag Disposal Ceremony on June 14,Flag Day, each year. While the U S Flag may be a $10.00 piece of cloth, the FREEDOMS it represents and provides to the American people is priceless and will last FOREVER. FREEDOM FOREVER James R. Fleming Sr.

I think Besty Ross is cool because she made the flag. We learned about the history of Besty Ross and we created timeline. I think Besty Ross lived generously because she made the flag so we could have something to celebrate. I hoped her husband did not die in the revolutionary war because she loved very much.

Steven W Norris, Bakersfield, Ca [11-12-2007]

You are wrong about displaying the flag backwards on any static surface such as a uniform. Dispite the idea that it is flying in the wind, it is not. It looks stupid and make us look stupid. The flag should look smart. Turning it backwards looks like it is wrong. To try and justify this by saying it is "Like it is flying in the wind" is like saying the "Emperors clothes are beautiful". Where is the little boy who will say "But hes naked!". It looks ridiculous and thats the truth.

anonymous [11-05-2007]

After doing some fairly copious research I find this site to be one of the very best for US Flag etiquette and protocol. The answers are well supported with citations to the US Code or other authority as possible. I have one question that is causing great consternation regarding flag retirement. When a flag is retired and burned is it appropriate to first cut the flag into pieces and burn them respectfully. My position is that cutting the flag in pieces for any reason is inappropriate. The arguements for cutting have stated that there is no clear prohibition to cutting first. The ceremony can be held even more respectfully, and the safety isue of burning a large flag could injure participants if the flag is not cut. My responses have been, to note that the flag is held to be a living thing and should be burned respectfully, or in whole to reduce the desecration of retirement. The drama of the ceremony is not the issue and does not support cutting. The fire and participants should be fit for purpose, that is, you would not expect a Den of approximately seven to ten Tiger Cub Scouts, (7 year olds), even with parental and adult supervision to retire a garrison flag at a campfire as the size of the fire, supervision and size of the flag would be unreasonably fit for purpose. Safety should always be a significant consideration in a retirement ceremony. Please help me with any direction or authority as to whether cutting a flag in pieces is appropriate before retirement by burning.

Stupid question - I di 5 years int eh Marines and whenever we heard colors, or the Star Spangled Banner, we stood at attention. Until January 29th, I always covered my heart with my right hand. Since that day - 21 years later, I still stand at attention when no in uniform - which I haven' worn in quite a few years. My question is which is customary? I just don't feel right with my hand over my heart, as Uncle Sam tought me to "lock my body" ;)

“Old Glory” The American Flag. I am an American protesting against all foreign flags being flown so freely in my country, flown by foreigners who do not respect the laws of our country. They came here seeking the American dream, but they brought their own flags. If you or I go to any country in the world and display our American flag, we will be burn along with our flag. It has been proven. My uncles fought in the Second World War, my brothers fought in the Korean War, my nephews in the Viet Nam war, and I still have nieces and nephews fighting in Iraq. My husband is retired Navy and his brothers also are highly decorated Paratroopers and Lieutenant officers, and still has nephews in the Navy. In my family alone we have twenty-four military women and men and some go through four generations of military service. All to protect our country and feel free to fly our own AMERICAN FLAG. I have seen the Mexican flag fly high at Strebly Park during a ball game in Stockton, California and others in Manteca displayed the same flag in their car dealer’s lot. I believe that the only flag that should be flown and displayed at any place and any time is “Old Glory” The American Flag. I Am An American citizen and very Patriotic at that.

Is it appropriate to say the Pledge of Allegiance without the presence of a flag?
Sarabeth Brown`, Daugherty Elementary School Garland, Texas [09-18-2007]

Betsy ross DID sew the american flag! But I agree that she didn't come up with the design, George Washington, Robert Morris and Geroge Ross did and they gave the design to her. But I KNOW she sewed it. so HA!

I was looking for information about the flag for my daughter's Brownie Girl Scout group and I found a wealth of information that the girls will really enjoy. Plus the copy of the Betsy Ross flag for them to color will help them remember their lesson. Thank you for gathering all this information together.

Most scholars agree that it was not Betsy who made the first flag, though she was a flagmaker who, records show, was paid in 1777 by the Pennsylvania State Navy Board for making "ship's colours. Please, don't keep fooling the public.

To me, the flag represents our country. We should love the flag as it represents our freedom and all those who fought for our freedom and rights. Those who burn and disrespect our flag should just leave and find a country and flag they do respect!
