Flag Ceremony Etiquette

In honor of Flag Day, which is celebrated on June 14, we are sharing some great flag ceremony tips with our troops. Click here to learn more about flag etiquette.

A flag ceremony honors the American flag as the symbol of our country, representing all the hopes, dreams and people it consists of. If your troop includes girls from other countries, you can honor their flags too by holding an international flag ceremony. 

Troops can order flags through their local council shops, located at one of our four service centers.

Journey materials, the Free Being Me curriculum helps girls define beauty for themselves and boost their self-confidence in the process. Girls are invited to create PSA videos that show what they think beauty is and that celebrate the qualities that make them unique!
