June 14 is Flag Day in the United States, a day to commemorate the adoption of the flag by resolution of the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. Today, it's celebrated as a way to preserve the traditions, pride, history, and respect for our nation's symbol. In keeping with these intentions, we're talking about flag etiquette and protocol, using as our source the US Flag Code, a set of instructional rules for display and care of the national flag. You can find the code online and there's also a handy reference here www.USA.gov/flag.

Join us as we discuss "Ten Things You Should NOT Do With the US Flag," proper etiquette while the national anthem is played, which days to display the flag (HINT: All of them), why bunting is your friend, and how we feel about variations on the US flag, such as the Thin Blue Line Flag for law enforcement.

The podcast is presented by author and host Marna Ashburn; wife, mother, and attorney Kelly Halligan Zimmerman; and Mike Derrick, a retired Army Officer, combat vet, and father of four.

New episodes are posted the first and third Wednesday of every month. Find them wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
