Does anyone know the dimensions for a memorial Flag display case. I found out that there are three different sizes of Flags given. I need to know which size flag is given at military funerals.

Donald Weimer: I may be mistaken but I believe the flag covering the coffin at burial is 5ft x 9 1/2 ft which allows the drape over the sides and ends. I also believe that the flag is of lighter weight material than normal so it is not suitable to fly outside, the weather, sun etc would ruin it. Hope this helps.
