How to Fold the American Flag for a Triangle Display Case


There is no greater symbol of loyalty and patriotism than to have the American flag folded into a triangle display case. For war heros and decorated military personnel, a triangle flag case can be designed to display medals as well as the flag. Here's how to fold the sentimental flag precisely to fit the display case.

  • Fold over. Holding all four coners of the flag, fold the lower stripes over the blue field.

  • Double fold. Holding all four corners again, fold the flag again. The folded edge of the flag should come together with open edge, forming a long, folded flag displaying the blue field on the left side.

  • Create a triangle. Bring up the bottom corner of the stripes and create a triangle fold.

  • Fold inward. Turn the outer point of the folded corner inward. The fold should be parallel to the open edge.

  • Complete. Continue the triangular pattern of folding. The finished triangles should display only the blue field.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the flag is displayed to honor a fallen soldier, engraving the soldier's name and battle on the case is always a thoughtful embellishment.
  • Other than the addition of medals, never clutter the display case or deface it in any way.
