Summer is upon us and it has brought plenty of events and reason for showing your patriotism and displaying the Star-Spangled Banner! Americans love to hang their flags in front of their houses around the Fourth of July. It’s how they show their love and support for their country.
However, not everyone has access to flagpoles or other structures to let their flags fly on their property. This doesn’t mean that they can’t display the love for their country in any other way. Here are some alternatives for you to fly your new flag without a flagpole.
Framing can make for a very impressive and dramatic way to display your American flag. You can get any size of flag according to the wall space in your home and get it framed in a nice antique piece with clear glass for dust resistance. You can hang it over the mantelpiece, behind the couch, or in the foyer of your house for a perfect entryway look for your home.
Mounting is the simplest and most cost-effective way of hanging your flag. Just use some banner clips or grommets and hang the fabric flat against any wall in your home. You can also add flourishes such as matching cords or mounting brackets for an even more impressive look.
You can also drape your flag on the back of the sofa, on the headboard of your bed, or on a table for a rustic yet patriotic look. Be sure to follow flag etiquette when you are draping it by keeping the stars on top and not letting it fall to the ground. Also, you need to keep it elevated so it’s away from shoes and dirty feet.
The flag looks beautiful when it’s displayed horizontally by hanging it near the window, on the porch, or on a balcony. It requires a few pieces of hardware such as brackets and some rope to secure it but it’s a great solution for displaying your patriotic pride where everyone can see it. Also, make sure however you choose to hang your flag, the canton, that part with the stars in it, is always to the top left from the viewer’s perspective.
