    Hello, i'm new to site and need some help with a flag display. In your opinion, does the flag display with ribbon, as shown in the attachment, violate the flag code? FlagUpClose.jpg

    Welcome cspeed007. The answer to your question is "no." It is actually the preferred way of adding honors to the flag. During most of the 19th century, battle honors and regimental designations were painted directly onto the stripes of the flag. This was specifically prohibited by the US Flag Code. Adding ribbons to the flag staff honors the flag without defacing it.
