Almost every building on Main Street USA has a flag flying above it, to reflect Walt Disney’s patriotism. But the only real flag is the one on the flag pole. This is because according to US custom, the American flag should only be flown from sunrise to sunset.To avoid having to raise and lower every flag each day, the ones on top of the buildings each have a flaw in the number of stars or stripes, and are thus not considered real flags.
The flag that is on the pole is lowered every day at 5:00 PM in the Flag Retreat ceremony. A veteran is selected from the park guests each day to participate in the ceremony.
