Several years ago I bought a 1974 fire truck that has an 85 foot boom / basket on it. Some time later I bought a 20' x 35' flag to display at funerals and special occasions free of charge. I suspend the flag vertically at about half height for these events. In my mind, I am simulating half staff since the boom could go higher. Occasionally, when suspending the flag above a roadway, I have the dilemma of which way to put the star field. In the recent Memorial day ceremony, I had it positioned so that the star field would be observers left as viewed from the stage area. This meant that those driving up to the event would see the incorrect placement of star field right. I am assuming I am doing this correctly as nobody has made mention of an error, but still it bugs me. I do the best I can about flag storage which also bugs me. Folding a flag of this size correctly would require a small army and most of the time I am faced with taking it down by myself and whatever volunteers walk over to help out. Usually only 3 or 4 people is the most I can get. The best solution I could come up with was to buy a large military duffel bag to put the flag in when not in use. This effectively keeps the flag from touching the ground and when taking it out of the bag, it comes out nicely. Any wrinkles it got from being in the bag are soon gone, I guess the weight of the flag itself helps pull them out. My fire truck / flag display is well received at all events and I am sadly set to go to a retired firefighter's funeral this week.
