Consider Chese Ohoughts by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC THE MEANING OF THE FOLDED FLAG At a military funeral, the flag that drapes the casket of the deceased veteran is positioned with the union field at the head and over the left shoulder of the deceased. After taps is played, the flag is folded into the symbolic tri-cornered shape and presented to the veteran's family. The thirteen folds of the flag represent the thirteen original colonies, while the triangular shape represents the patriots' tri-cornered hat. In addition, each fold represents a different belief, honor, tribute, or recognition, with the first fold symbolizing life, the second the belief in eternal life, and the third honoring the departed veteran who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country. We realize the sacrifices that the members of our military have made for us to make our country what it is, and we want to help honor them with all the respect, dignity, and recognition that they deserve.
