When an official proclamation is made for the American flag to be lowered to half staff there are several flag flying situations which make it virtually impossible to comply. For example it is impossible to lower the American flag to half staff in the following applications:
Flag Set on the Wall of Your House
Indoor Floor Stand Flag Set
The accepted solution is to tie a long black ribbon to the top of the flagpole allowing it to drape over the American flag. Our Black Mourning Ribbon is hemmed on all four sides and made with the same fade resistant invista nylon 66 used in our commercial quality Endura-Nylon American flags.
This is the perfect answer to the question: "How can I display the U.S. flag at half mast if I only have a single outside mast?" The ribbon is long enough to be noticed, and durable and weather-proof enough to be used for many years. It has a brass grommet at the top for ease of use. A must have.
Very nice looking addition to indicate respect and mourning.
Used today to honor the fallen police office from Wise County, Virginia. Ribbon did not get tangled was easy to put on and remove. Thanks for having the solution to a house flag at half-staff.
The mourning ribbons I received were of excellent quality. I will be proud to place it on my American Flag.
Haven’t had a chance to use, but it looks strong And solves the half staff problem on wall mount
