Hoisting and Lowering the Turkish Flag

The Flag is to be hoisted on all public foundations. The national representatives have to hoist the Flag on their residences and their vehicles. The hoisting and lowering of the flag is to accompany with ceremony.

Permanent hoisting of the flag, the closed places in which the flag shall be placed, the places where the flag shall be used as background, the way of hoisting the flag in private places, the schedules and subjects about hoisting of the flag on the vessels of the Turkish Armed Forces and Turkish merchant ships- the charter has elaborate instructions for all these.

The coffins of former Presidents, martyrs and other civilians or soldiers; the statues of Atatürk in opening ceremonies and the desks in official oath ceremonies can be covered with the Turkish flag.
