If your flag is fixed to a staff and can't be raised and lowered, to indicate mourning tie a black ribbon the width of one stripe and length of the flag to the top of the pole below the finial. This is the kind of flag that most people have and since Flag Day and the Fourth of July will fall during the mourning period for President Reagan,I thought it would be a good idea to let people know the proper way to display their flag if they can't fly it at half mast. Also please replace tattered and worn flags.
