The Trophy Club Fire Department manages all flags on town-owned property in eight different locations. The Town adheres to federal law and flag protocol to guide how these flags are flown at town facilities. The Town of Trophy Club also has policies outlining adherence to federal law and flag protocol, proclamations by the president, governor, or mayor, and addressing incidents related specifically to Trophy Club.
Temporary Removal of Flags
It is our goal to keep all town-owned flags flying at all times, however there are some occasions when the flags must be removed, such as inclement weather, repair or replacement.
Flying the United States Flag at Half-staff
