Legion updates flag publications

The American Legion recently updated its "Let's Be Right on Flag Etiquette" booklet in an effort to increase public knowledge of the proper display and respect for the U.S. flag. The 32-page booklet outlines the Flag Code; features visuals on how to properly display and fold the flag; highlights the Top 10 flag myths; answers frequently asked questions; and much more.

"Let's Be Right on Flag Etiquette" can be purchased for $1 a piece through Emblem Sales.

The American Legion has been leading the fight to protect Old Glory since a 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1989 defined flag desecration as protected speech. "Let the People Decide" brochure highlights The American Legion's position on flag desecration. Download the brochure for free here.

Additionally, The American Legion offers a Flag Alert e-newsletter that provides notification when the U.S. flag is to be displayed at half-staff. Subscribe to the flag e-newsletter at www.legion.org/newsletters. For further flag information and resources, visit www.legion.org/flag.
