Flag etiquette for photography sessions

While the United States Flag Code is federal law, penalties for failure to comply are not enforced. That doesn’t give photographers free reign to treat the Stars and Stripes as a typical backdrop. One solution for clients who want to incorporate an American flag in their session is red, white, and blue bunting (with blue up and red down). If you do plan to include the flag in a session, be wary of the Flag Code no-nos.
