Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie has suggested a valuable resource available from his office that offers information about flag etiquette.
"The flag is one of this country's most enduring symbols of liberty and justice for all and must be handled respectfully," said Ritchie. "When celebrating our independence on July 4, we have a great opportunity to teach our younger generations about flag etiquette. This brochure is an important
resource that assists in the area of civic education." A Guide to Flag Etiquette is available free by e-mailing the Office of the Secretary of State at
or by calling (651) 201-1324. Quantities are available for distribution to groups and classrooms. For the brochure: www.sos.state.mn.us/docs/flag_etiquette.
