All people should face the flag and stand at attention, when the flag is being hoisted or lowered.

When displayed in public, the flag should only be flown from sunrise to sunset.

When displayed on a speaker's platform, “it should be flown on the speaker's right as he faces the audience or flat against the wall, above and behind the speaker,” according to the Code.
