The Star-Spangled Banner flying high at Fort McHenry

The Star-Spangled Banner flies high over Fort McHenry 24 hours a day by special order of the White House. It continues to evoke a special, patriotic feeling. When a star is added or if there is a new design for the flag, Fort McHenry is the first location to fly the new flag.
