    Fly the Flag on Memorial Day

  1. Step 1

    Raise the flag to the top of the pole, and then lower to half-staff position, which is halfway between the top and bottom of the pole. This is the proper way to fly a flag at half-staff.

  2. Step 2

    At noon, raise the flag once again to the top of the pole, full staff position.

  3. Step 3

    At sunset, ceremonially (slowly) lower the flag and store for the night. The American flag should never be flown at night unless it is properly illuminated by a spotlight trained on it.
