U.S. flags fly year-round, but soon even more flags will be displayed proudly. Flag Day is Wednesday, and July Fourth is around the corner. To properly honor Old Glory, here are some tips from the American Legion: Display the flag only from sunrise to sunset unless the flag is properly illuminated during the night. Whether displayed horizontally or vertically against a wall or in a window, the union (the stars) should be in the upper left from the observer's point of view.

adamb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - With 16 flags and patriotic bunting adorning the front of his Virginia Avenue home, George Stottlemyer was taking it easy on Flag Day. "I just put a few of them out," he said Tuesday. "Not all of them. " A bundle of small flags, each one neatly rolled up, sat on a chair next to his front door. Stottlemyer said he didn't put them all out because of work he is doing on the front porch. In the backyard, a large flag hung lazily near a tree, limp in the hot afternoon sun. As a veteran, Stottlemyer said he celebrates all patriotic holidays by placing more flags than most people would in front of his house.
