Is flag a etiquette?
The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored so that it might be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
Why do you never let the flag touch the ground?
Don’t Let It Touch the Ground! The reason for this provision is to respect the American flag and everything for which it stands, while also protecting the American flag from damage. If the American flag hangs so low on a flagpole that it touches the ground, it will likely accumulate dirt.
