June 14 is Flag Day, and a good time to be reminded of proper etiquette for handling the American flag.
It's customary to have the American flag displayed in front of federal and state
government buildings. Flags are raised at sun up and lowered at sundown, according
to Maryland State Trooper Sgt. Robert Fraley.
There's only one exception.
"Unless it's a situation like out front where you have the spotlight illuminating
a flag, which you're allowed to display at all hours of the darkness," says
The flag also should never be dipped.
