American Flag Raising Ceremony

This ceremony is obviously American, I hope our members that are not American will bear with me a moment (maybe it can be modified? or satisfy a curiosity?) The flag etiquette was on the back of the copy of the ceremony and I thought it would of interest to those who wanted this ceremony.

I don't know where this came from, since it was a copy of a copy of a copy.....you get the idea!
