How to Hang the American Flag
Ask This Old House carpenter and U.S. Navy veteran Nathan Gilbert explains the proper way to hang and display a U.S. flag.

Where to find it?
The mounting block Nathan demonstrated that works well for vinyl siding is a surface mounting block, which is manufactured by Ply Gem and can be found at most home centers.

If you are looking to retire a U.S. flag and don’t feel comfortable burning it yourself, Nathan suggests contacting your local American Legion post or Boy Scouts of America troop to do it for you.
