How to Properly Fly the Flag

Sep 29, 2013

During the summer months, there are a lot of holidays that celebrate veterans and those who served in the military. Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day come to mind. During this time of year, it is common for people to fly the flag at their home or place of business. But are they doing it right?

There is a code of rules that must be followed when flying the flag. 4 U.S.C. Section 4-10 dictates the following rules for handling and displaying the US Flag.

Arizona Celebrates Centennial - 100 Years of Statehood

Feb 14, 2012

It was on this historic day in 1912 that President William Howard Taft signed the papers to admit Arizona Territory as the 48th State of the United States of America. Today, one hundred years later, people all over the state are celebrating a century of statehood.

The Arizona Centennial Foundation has been hard at work promoting this special date all throughout the state for the past several months. They were also a major sponsor of the Arizona Best Fest, which took place this past weekend and featured a variety of exhibits, music, food, and attractions in honor of the state's history.

Copper ChopperThe State of Arizona's 100-year anniversary is just around the corner! If you have been out and about lately, you may have noticed that the Arizona Centennial Foundation has selected a rather unusual mascot for the state's 100th birthday.

Rather than choose a mascot, person, or event that defines Arizona's history, the Foundation has selected a custom built "chopper" bike, created by Arizona resident and bike builder Paul Yaffe.
