January 1st, 1776. Where? Located at Prospect Hill Avenue and Munroe Street, Prospect Hill Castle is important to Somerville's, Massachusetts history. On January 1, 1776, General George Washington ordered that a new flag be raised on a 76-foot schooner mast placed on Prospect Hill. Representing the 13 united colonies during the Revolutionary War, this was the first true "American" flag flown in [what is now] the United States. The tower that now stands atop Prospect Hill was erected in 1902, and remains one of Somerville's oldest and greatest landmarks. Every year on January 1, the historic flag raising is recreated at the Prospect Hill Tower, commemorating the great historical value of one Someville's most treasured locations.

The American Flag should always be flown higher than the state flag and should be flown a half-mast when in peril or in rememberance.
This will all depend on which flag is flying alongside or below the American flag. If being flown with flags of other nations, they should all be raised to the same height and are never to be flown on the same pole. If being flown with a state, city or organizational flag, the US flag will fly above the other flag in a larger size. On most standard sized flagpoles, the American flag will be a 3'x5' flag and the other flag will be a 2'x3' flag. If the US flag is flying along a different flag on separate flagpoles, the flags can be of equal height but the US flag will then need to fly on the extreme left of the other flags. This left side is known to be a prominent flag. When flown with flagpoles displaying non-national flags, the American flag will be raised first and lowered last. There is a link below.
