On that note, by Section C the Flag Manual,"A flag in any position below the peak(the top of the mast or truck) is technically in the half-mast position,". It goes on to say in general it should be halfway between the peak and the foot. But, I think we all know that these are not the regulations in question. Didn't all this start because of a town ordnance stating the size in square inches or something, and not the way it's diplayed? Or, should everybody that is not flying our flag by the exact standards be fined $50.00 a day until they take it down? Who came up with that rediculous ordnance, anyway? I'm just proud to see so many people still flying them!
