Folding the U.S. Flag

A - Hold the flag waist-high.


B - Fold the lower striped section of the flag over the blue field.


C - The folded edge (the edge nearest the reader in illustration B) is then folded over to meet the open edge.


D - A triangular fold is then started by bringing the striped corner of the folded edge to the open edge.


E. The outer point is then turned inward (parallel with the open edge) to form a second triangle.


F - The triangular folding is continued until the entire length of the flag is folded in this manner.
G - When the flag is completely folded, only the blue field should be visible.
