The Flag is to be regarded as the sacred emblem of the nation, to be paid due reverence and devotion by all its citizens.
According to Government archives, the flag should never be allowed to touch the ground, nor should it be flown or used for purely decorative purposes on anything that is for temporary use and likely to be discarded except on state occasions.
In relation to the display of the national flag with other flags or emblems, no other flag, colour, standard or emblem should be displayed above or to the right of the national flag.
When the flags of two or more nations are displayed together, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height and all flags should be as far as possible.
The Grenadian Flag should never be smaller than any other Flag flown at the same time.
When the Flag becomes worn and must be replaced, it should be burnt and not used for any other purpose than that for which it was designed.
The rules also state that all merchant ships of Grenadian registration should fly the flag.
The Flag should not be draped over vehicles of any sort except on Military, Police and State occasions.
The National Flag should not be dipped to any person or thing.
With many local manufacturers looking to capitalize on the independence festivities, many patriotic pundits are keen to remind of the rule which states that the national flag should not be used for decoration or advertising, without prior permission from the appropriate government authority.
Grenada’s National flag should not be printed on, or reproduced on articles of clothing or furniture, without permission.
