Independence Day Unique This Year For The Flag

Sponsored by:

If you´re unfurling the old flag for this coming Fourth of July holiday, there are some things you need to know this year. Independence Day is falling during a time of national mourning.

Mike Hale is vice president at Elmer´s Flag and Banner. And the stars and stripes are at half-staff honoring former President Ronald Reagan´s passing. And since he died on June fifth, the flags stay at half-staff for 30 days — until July fifth.

Hale notes something that many people may NOT be aware of. He says if people don´t have their flag where they can lower it, then they need to put a black ribbon on the flag.

Hale says he called the White House to confirm that Grover Cleveland died June 24th, 1908 — the last president who died during the Independence day season.
