Flag etiquette questionable

Posted: Friday, September 02, 2005

I had been Outside for three weeks. Upon my return to the central Kenai Peninsula, I observed that many of the U.S. flags and Alaska state flags are flying at half mast or the U.S. flag is flying at full staff while the Alaska flag is at half mast on the same pole. I even noted that the McDonald’s flag is at half mast (no doubt in recognition of my three-week absence).

It is disconcerting to see the U.S. flag flying at full staff, while another U.S. flag, on the same municipal property, is at half mast.

Regardless of one’s views on world events and-or federal and state politics, the least we can do is to ensure the flags are flying properly.
