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.
