Statement on Signing the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005
July 24, 2006
Today I was pleased to sign into law the ''Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005.'' Americans have long flown our flag at their homes as an expression of their appreciation for our freedoms and their pride in our Nation. As our brave men and women continue to fight to protect our country overseas, Congress has passed an important measure to protect our citizens' right to express their patriotism here at home without burdensome restrictions.
NOTE: H.R. 42, approved July 24, was assigned Public Law No. 109-243.
