    Timeclock for the Flag

    Hi, Robert,

    This is a great question. The U.S. Flag Code (section 174, to be precise) only states that the flag should be flown from sunup to sundown. It does not indicate a specific time frame.

    Also, all-weather flags can be flown 24 hours a day, so long as they are constantly illuminated.

    It would certainly be appropriate to change your time for taking down the flag during daylight-saving time. Just remember to keep an eye it when it starts getting dark earlier in the fall--don't leave your flag up in the dark.
