Use our step by step instructions below to fold your American flag. Or take your flag to a local Boy Scout troop of VFW post for folding.
You can also purchase a pre-folded American flag from us in two different sizes (large 5x9.5 standard US military burial (casket) size or small 3x5 presentation size). These flags are also made in the USA and lovingly, skillfully folded by our craftsmen in the mountains of NC.
To properly fold the Flag, begin by holding it
waist-high with another person so that its
surface is parallel to the ground.
Fold the lower half of the stripe section
lengthwise over the field of stars, holding the
bottom and top edges securely.
Fold the flag again lengthwise with the blue
field on the outside.
Make a triangular fold by bringing the striped
corner of the folded edge to meet the open
(top) edge of the flag.
Turn the outer (end) point inward, parallel to
the open edge, to form a second triangle.
The triangular folding is continued until the
entire length of the flag is folded in this
When the flag is completely folded, only a
triangular blue field of stars should be visible.
