Front Porch Flag: Show Your Patriotism

As I was reading a couple of the comments from a previous post about the Leo Cottage, I was inspired to write a post showing examples of a front porch flag. Some of you mentioned you enjoyed seeing the U.S. flag flying from the cottage’s porch. So here’s a few more that I think you’ll enjoy!

Country Front Porch Flag - Americana at its finest

Is there anything more “Americana” than the iconic white porch above with its swing and flat with amber waves of grain in the background? Maybe apple pie and baseball. 🙂

While I like the look of a flag flying in front of a pretty home, the truth is, I don’t think you need to fly a flag to show your patriotism. In my humble opinion, true patriotism begins within our hearts and displaying the golden rule through our actions.

Normally this image would make me think it’s Independence Day or Flag Day, but it looks like fall so I’m guessing it’s a patriotic neighborhood or some other type of celebration.

  1. Beautiful! We fly our Flag year round on a pole since we do not have a gorgeous porch to fly it from. Thank you for sharing these wonderful homes that fly our Flag (and the Canadian Flag) in style. BTW, the Flags flying in the Fall may have been for Veteran’s day.

  2. Wonderful post! Perhaps it will inspire others to fly our flag year round. It reminds me of my Dad who proudly flew the and would put it out every morning and bring in every evening because he had no way to light it at night. Thank you for that memory this morning!

  3. Thank you for your wonderful story. In western Washington displays of American flags are often frowned upon. I’ve had holes burned in our front porch flag however we will not be deterred. Thank you again

  4. This is a wonderful post, Jennifer. We are so fortunate to have a classic and beautiful flag, as well, and I adore the buntings. Thank you, and have a great day.
