Folding of the
US Flag
into a Triangle
What each Fold means when folding the U.S. flag

The first fold represents life.

The second is for eternal life.

The third fold honors and remembers departed veterans who gave a portion of their lives in defense of our country.

The fourth fold recognizes our weaker nature as defined by our desire to seek divine guidance in times of war and peace.

The fifth fold is in tribute to the country.

The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie.

The seventh fold is in tribute to our brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces, no matter where they are.

The eighth fold is in tribute to our mothers.

The ninth fold honors women, who through faith, love, loyalty, devotion and service have shaped the nation.

The tenth fold is a tribute to our fathers for giving their sons and daughters for the defense of our country.

The eleventh fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon, and glorifies the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The twelfth fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, signifying "In God We Trust." The shape of the folded flag resembles a cocked hat and reminds us of the Revolutionary War patriots who started the who thing.
