United States Flag Etiquette

The Pledge of Allegience and
the National Anthem

Excerpt from the US Flag Code - "The pledge of allegiance should be rendered by standing at attention, facing the flag, and saluting.

When the national anthem is played or sung, citizens should stand at attention and salute at the first note and hold the salute through the last note. The salute is directed to the flag, if displayed, otherwise to the music."
