When I walked past the Marshall House in Savannah, Georgia, I said to myself that is just plain wrong. It was dark outside and the name of the hotel was lit up, but the American flag was not illuminated the way it should be at night. It can be displayed from sunrise to sunset on buildings or on a stationary flag staff to show pride in our country. The patriotic method of displaying a flag for 24 hours is to make sure that it is illuminated during the hours of darkness. Our flag should never be dipped to any person like others flags can be. It can be flown upside down only as a distress signal. Our flag should not be used as a drapery, or for covering a anything, or for any type of decoration in general.
