The American Flag should fly higher than any other flag near it.

The American Flag should be taken down at night, or illuminated.

The American Flag should be run up the flag pole quickly in the morning,
and taken down slowly in the evening.

If the American Flag is to be flown at half staff, you should run it to the top of the flag pole, then down to half staff. All other flags should be lowered to half staff also.

If the American Flag becomes tattered and unserviceable, the Flag
Code dictates that the flag be disposed of by burning.
(Do not throw it away, it is not trash!) This
"should be done discreetly so the act of destruction is not
perceived as a protest or desecration."
