It is difficult (if not impossible) to display a house or porch American flag at half-staff. An accepted patriotic practice and display of mourning is to attach a black ribbon or streamer at the top of the American flag. For U.S. flags displayed on a short staff (house mounted) or for indoor flags that cannot be lowered to half-staff, tie a black ribbon above the full-staffed US flag. This ribbon measures 3"x10' and is suitable for use with a 3'x5' or 4'x6' flag. The ribbon is made from the same SolarMax nylon as our US flags and is hemmed on all four sides and can be tied to your flagpole staff. NOTE: Ribbon comes as one straight piece and can be tied in a bow as shown, or hung as a flat ribbon as shown. It does not come pre-made in a bow shape. 100% Made in the USA. NOTE: Flag not included!
