2. United States Flag, Standard Fold: How to fold the flag
A. Flags folded by Honor Guards or others, in the standard triangular fold

is because of differences in fabric density in the flags, the weather, the time
of day, etc. Also, no two honor
guard details will ever fold the flag exactly the same. Consequently, folded flags can be bulky in the middle, loose
on the outer edges, or folded too tightly.
