Folding the American Flag takes two people. First fold the flag in half lengthwise, do this twice making sure the blue field is outside. Starting at the striped end of the flag, slowly make a triangular fold for the entire length of the flag. One person holds the blue field while the other continues to make triangular folds until the entire flag is in one triangle. The stars should be showing at the end. Take the loose edge of the flag and tuck it into the pocket formed by the folds so that only the blue field and stars are left showing.
