Why do you fly a flag? It can be a U.S. Flag, State flag, or an honorary flag of some kind. If I asked one-hundred people, I might get one-hundred different answers, but what are some of the obvious ones?
- To show pride in the United States
- To show patriotism
- To watch the flag flying
- To honor Veterans
- To honor America
- To show respect for the Stars and Stripes
