JEFFERSON CITY, MO. – As folks honor the country this fourth of July, they’re being encouraged to follow proper flag etiquette when flying Old Glory.

Mike Buss with the American Legion says the American flag represents our freedom and should be honored by all citizens, regardless of their political views…

 

 

Buss encourages all Americans to fly the flag every day of the year, especially on patriotic holidays. He says it is also certainly okay to decorate or dress in items that resemble the flag….

 

 

The American flag was officially adopted 239 years ago, one year after the United States declared its independence from Great Britain.

The original design has been modified 26 times and the current 50-star flag was ordered in 1959.
