As Americans, we take great pride in displaying the U.S. flag on our homes. I think it’s important that people also know the proper way to fold it when it's time to be taken down.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published “How to Fold an American Flag,” an instructional piece now included in their Lifestyle article section.
“If you were a boy scout or served in the U.S. Armed Forces, you learned how to fold an American flag. For those who don't, this article describes how,” writes Gary Korb, Cigar Advisor Executive Editor.
Millions of Americans proudly display the U.S. flag on their property, yet many of them may not know how to perform the procedure, or more specifically, the ceremony of folding “The Stars & Stripes.” With information provided by The American Legion, Gary’s article not only describes the correct manner in which the flag should be folded, it also includes the symbolism and meaning behind the ceremony.
“As Americans, we take great pride in displaying the U.S. flag on our homes,” writes Gary. “I think it’s important that people also know the proper way to fold it when it's time to be taken down.” The procedure isn't hard to do, he says. But beyond the act of folding the flag, much more lies behind it. According to the article, “if you've seen a folded American flag, you'll notice it is triangular in shape. There is a reason for this, as well as a number of meanings that correspond to the 12 stages of folding. The ceremony itself represents the Judeo-Christian principles on which The United States of America was founded, while each fold has its own meaning, ranging from paying tribute to our veterans, to honoring our country, to our faith in God, and more.”
