USPS: Flag Day is Friday, June 14

Retired Marines Rick Gulland, a retail associate, and Genaro Franco, a customer services supervisor, raise the U.S. and POW-MIA flags at Citrus Station in Corona, CA, in 2017.

Flag Day, one of six days each year that Postal Service facilities are required to fly the POW-MIA flag, is Friday, June 14.

The flag honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action. The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.

For more information, refer to the Postal Service’s Administrative Support Manual, which explains the organization’s guidelines for U.S. flag display and maintenance, as well as the requirements for displaying the POW-MIA flag.
