|The Flag of the United States of America
The DAR promotes and encourages a strong patriotic feeling and respect for The Flag of the United States of America. The principal objectives are to:
- Keep the Flag flying
- Protect the Flag under all conditions
- Ensure its correct use and display
- Educate children and adults about the authorized rules of the Flag Code adopted by the United States Congress.
The DAR publishes a leaflet about the U.S. Flag Code which can be distributed to institutions, businesses and individuals. DAR Flag materials can be useful when students are studying the history and importance of the U.S. Flag
DAR members present American Flags to new citizens at naturalization ceremonies, schools, youth organizations, historical sites, museums, veterans' homes, and hospitals. Braille Flags are also given to schools and institutions for the blind.
