Using an american flag as a decoration can be a touchy subject. I’ve hung a flag on my wall in every place I’ve ever called home because I love being able to look at it everyday. Some might argue and say this is disrespectful and unacceptable. In fact, US Flag Code actually states its disrespectful to use a flag as drapery or bedding. But I think there’s a right way and wrong way to do everything, and displaying a flag in your home is perfectly fine as long as its done tastefully. Just remember to make sure the stars are always in the upper left corner whether you’re hanging it horizontally or vertically.
Here’s 50 great examples of american flags being displayed – one for each star.
Best Made carries an American flag by its downtown New York neighbor Annin flagmakers, a Fulton Street company founded in 1847. Annin’s flags are classics: they were at Abraham Lincoln’s inauguration and funeral, and planted on the North Pole in 1909, the South Pole in 1930, Mount Everest in 1963, and on the moon during the 1969 Apollo mission. Best Made’s Annin American Flag is 3 x 5′ amd is made of 100% heavyweight cotton bunting, has embroidered stars and is a steal at only $46.
