During the playing of the National Anthem - while facing the flag and while watching a parade - at the moment the flag passes:

  • Persons in uniform should render the military salute.
  • Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are not in uniform may render the military salute.
  • All other persons should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart; men not in uniform, should remove any headgear or hat with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.
  • If flag is not in sight during playing of the National Anthem, face the (source of the) music.
