Should the flag be lit at night?

The flag should be lit at all times, either by daylight or artificial light.

When is it OK to burn a flag?

Usually when the flag is worn out. It's then retired by burning.

When would the flag be flown upside down?

It can be flown upside down as a distress signal.

Are there any other interesting things people should know about flag etiquette?

Well, the first flag only had 13 stars.

How do you feel about people wearing American flag wind pants?

Did they make them themselves?

No, they bought them at Wal-Mart.

I guess that might be all right, because it was never actually a real flag.
