The U.S. Postal Service has released four first-class stamps that feature a painting of an American flag flying at different times of the day: sunrise, noon, sunset, and night.

Each of the four first-class stamps was created by Laura Stutzman of Mountain Lake Park, MD

Those will make a great addition to my small but growing "US FLAG" stamps! I had originally started with the US stamps that had red/white/blue on the stamp, but then after seeing the beautiful "Raising the Flag at Iwo Jima" stamp I realized they come in other colors, too.
Gotta get me some--sure hope the post mistress has some!

The American Flag should be brought down at sunset unless there are lights trained on it.

nr-norare is correct, all flags come down at sunset unless you have them illuminated by light. I put a spot light on mine as my work hours made it impossible to fly my flags with out the light. Same goes for the Ausiie flag and most nations.

There was discussion of this in the recent Linn's. If you look closely, you can see the highlight on the lower left side of the flag. Supposedly this is from a spotlight.

Has anybody soaked any of these yet?? I have a couple of them, but was concerned they may soak like the Sinatra stamps?

I think for now they're in booklets--at least that's what my post mistress told me--sometimes I have found her to be wrong on stamp items.

Thanks guys for this thread ! I knew nothing about these 'New' Flag stamps !!.
Now I have been checking them out and I see that they are issued neither in Sheets or Booklets....but in coils. Also, different printers and with both self-adhesive and regular gummed available.
Now I must go hunting for these too !!

With USA flags, my collection is never ending

Londonbus1.....Always flappin' in the wind.

I haven't got these yet but I am working on it.

However, we are all missing something I believe.
The last stamp of the 4, 'The Night version' has a glaring design error.
Can you see what it is ??
And are you watching Laura?

Londonbus1......Loves those flappin' Flags !

I have tried to figure it out but seeing as how I haven't seen any actual 24/7 flags I realy have no clue what to look for. Can you shed some light on it LB.

The error that I see is that the bottom right of the field of stars should line up with a red stripe not a white one.

Greets again !

Cimarron.....The 24/7 Flags set is shown in the first post.
If you look carefully you will see...........

Ziggy....good try, you are warm. But if you look closely you will see that the bottom right of the field of stars does indeed line up with a red stripe !!

So what is this glaring error ??
Keep looking and ..... and ....
I hope it doesn't hurt !!

Londonbus1......The wicked

I saw in Linn's Stamp News that the night stamp of 24/7 appears to have 14 stripes instead of 13--7 white stripes instead of 6.
I saw on disappointmentbay that someone was trying to sell one for $49.00!!!
