The following information was released by California State Senator Tom Harman (CA-35).
- The flag is to be flown from sunrise to sunset on buildings, homes and flagpoles. Once the sun goes down, the flag is to be taken indoors, unless it is illuminated by a light.
- The flag is to be raised quickly and lowered ceremoniously.
- The flag should not be flown in inclement weather (unless it’s an all-weather flag.)
- Flags should be flown daily on or near administration buildings of every public institution, in or near schoolhouses and in or near polling places during elections.
- No other flag is to fly above the US flag or to the right of the US flag.
- If the flag is going to be displayed horizontally, then the union (blue area with the stars) is to be on the top left (peak).
