I love to see the starry flag that floats above my head.
I love to see its waving fold with stripes of white and red.
"Be brave* say the red stripes,
"Be pure" say the bright stars,
"And stand for the right.
" Taps are played as the flag is lowered and folded which then ends the ceremony. A patriotic song might be sung instead.
Flag ceremonies might include some rules to observe in handling or displaying the flag.
