Private Residence

Residential Image

In flying a flag at a private residence, house or apartment, all of the relevant guidelines in the Flag Code should be followed. It should be flown at night only if illuminated and in inclement weather only if made of all-weather material (contact a local flag dealer for sales information). The flag should be clean and without tears, rips or shredding. For proper days to fly the flag and fly at half-staff, see When to Fly the Flag. The flag may also be hung vertically from a window, roof eave, or other structural overhang.
