First of all, I guess I have to tell you that I am from The Netherlands. I am born and raised in The Netherlands but for several reasons my heart belongs to The United States of America. On special days (Independance day, september 11) I fly the Star Spangled Banner and my heart jumps when I see it proudly waving from the front of my house. My question is the following: Is there a protocol for folding the flag? I always see the flags being carefully folded in movies and it seems that it is done following a set protocol. Can anyone tell me more about folding the American flag? Thanks in advance. Peter. My apologizes for not thinking before I leap. I just discoveed that this question was already posted on this forum.
