This Independence Day, let us know some interesting facts and customs about the American Flag :

When displaying the American flag on a flagpole, it  should always be raised briskly and lowered slowly and ceremoniously.

When displaying the American flag with other flags, it should always be flown highest and placed in the center of other flags.

The American flag should never touch the ground or anything beneath it and should be replaced if it becomes damaged or worn out.

 The current American flag design with 50 stars was  adopted on July 4, 1960, after Hawaii became a state, making it the 50th state  to join the Union.

The colors of the American flag have symbolic meanings:  Red represents valor and bravery, white represents purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
