    I am in a marching band honor guard,and we all wear black gloves. I read that the person carrying the American flag should wear white but black is ok. My question is if the American flag person wears white should everyone in the honor guard do the same.

    Hello, PSaw370!

    I don't really know as I have never been involved in a Marching Band or Color Guard organization. However, having said that, I can offer you my NON-expert opinion that I think the gloves worn by all the members of the Color Guard should be of the SAME color, preferably WHITE. I offer my opinion based on my many years of observing many different Color Guards in many different situations, and they always ALL wore WHITE gloves.

    I hope this helps!

    Good Luck!
