Displaying and Storing the United States Flag
1. Display the flag in a triangle-shaped display case. Many people love to display the flag, especially if it's a flag given in honor of a loved one. You can place your folded flag in a container designed for displaying the flag. This is a reverent way to display the flag with honor.
For example, veterans' families often receive a flag following the veteran's funeral. This flag will be placed over the coffin, then folded to be presented to the family. You can store this flag in a display case to remember your family member. You can purchase a case online or at a store that sells flags.
2. Store the flag in a clean, dry place. You might place it in a drawer or closet. Keep it separate from other items so it doesn't get mixed in with your everyday linens.
It's a good idea to put the flag in a case or plastic container before you store it. This will protect it from dirt and dust.
