Flag Salute Etiquette

Awana’s procedure for the flag salute:

  1. Order Arms (everyone is on their color line, standing with arms at their sides, getting ready for the presentation of the flag)
  2. Hats are to be removed for the flag salute and for the prayer
  3. Present the Colors (clubbers presenting flags need to be in uniform; they are to hold out the flag with the right hand and are not required to salute the flag)
  4. Right hand salute
  5. Pledge to the American Flag first (our club starts with “Ready? Begin” to keep everyone together)
  6. Pledge to the Awana flag (Ready? Begin.)
  7. Post the Colors (flags are returned to their stands)
  8. Prayer
