U.S. Flag code

For nearly 50 years after Congress authorized the design for our flag, citizens had no uniform set of rules to guide them in displaying and showing respect for the flag.

To supply such a guide, a National Flag Conference was held in Washington. D.C. on Flag Day, June 14 1923. Representatives of sixty-eight organizations met and drew up a Flag Code, which was revised by a second Conference in 1924.

Congress in 1942 adopted a resolution which made the Flag Code a law. This resolution was amended on July 7, 1976 and became Public Law 94-344 commonly called the Flag Code.
