Flags want to be flown, and John Hood knows when to fly them, according to history and customs. In the new issue of PFA’s newsletter, The Vexilloid Tabloid, he draws from his extensive database of flag flying days to suggest a flag a day for the next two months. Also in this issue, Michael Orelove writes about flag retirement ceremonies and his visit to Willamette National Cemetery last Flag Day to attend such an event. And as always you’ll find notes from the most recent PFA meeting, John Hood’s “What’s That Flag?” quiz, and Flags in the News.
And to answer the title question for today, August 1st: John suggests Switzerland, as today is the Swiss National Day.
