Way to Teach Your Kids about the American Flag

August 15, 2019 2 min read

We are responsible for shaping the minds of the next generation. Our kids look up to us as role models, follow our actions, and learn through the examples we set for them.

So, if you want to instill a great sense of pride and love for the American flag in your child, you need to start at an early age.

Teach them About the Flag

First things first, start by educating them about the importance of the flag. Teach them about the value of the Star-Spangled Banner and the role it played in shaping the culture of our great nation.

You need to teach them about why it’s a symbol of pride for every American. This will instill the same pride in them.

You can make it fun by creating a short presentation. Include fun facts to make things interesting. Encourage your child to ask questions and answer them patiently.

If you don’t encourage your child to ask questions, they’ll never learn the true value of the flag.

Teach Them the Etiquettes of Displaying the Flag

You must teach your children the rules they must follow when displaying the flag. You probably know some of them, but it’s good to refresh your memory once in a while.

You can go through this article published by Courier-Journal to learn more about the etiquettes of displaying the American flag.

Make sure to highlight all the rules to your little one. Keep it simple and explain why we can’t display the flag a certain way. This will make it easier for them to understand the rules.

For example: one of the reasons we can’t display the flag upside down is because it will touch the ground. It’s considered disrespectful and can even damage the fabric of the flag. That’s why we have to place it on top of a mast.

Teach Them How to Maintain the Flag

One thing you can do is buy them their own flag. Then teach them about flag maintenance. Teach them how to wash the flag without damaging the fabric.

When they own a flag, they’ll also learn how to take care of it. This also teaches your child responsibility from an early age.

Very Satisfied

I received my US flag sooner than expected which was appreciated! The high quality and workmanship of the flag were a pleasure to see. I will definitely keep you in mind for my next replacement purchase.

Great Flag

Good quality flag, promptly delivered!

My birthday present for myself

Beautiful. Heavy duty looking but easy to erect. Search "flag pole installation" on You Tube. We live in Manteca, California completely across the country from Atlanta and our delivery tube arrived dented so we pulled out the pole and because the packaging was so strong there was no damage to the pole. We are HAPPY.
Note: you only need 1 @ 50lb bag of sand (I bought 3).

Excellent flag quality and color would recommend this product. We hang it proudly!

Disappointed that the wording on the flag only read left to right on one side. That required hanging the flag to the right while needed to hang the flag to the left.
