History of the Feather Flag

Where did we get the tradition of lowering the
US flag on flagpoles at the death of a President? What is the proper height? How is it that this tradition is related to the Pirate flag?
In Medieval Europe, a black flag was often draped or flown on poles outside of houses where someone had died...

Sights of pirates have brought fear into the hearts of ship crews through the ages. Pirating as we know it started as early as the 8th Century [many Vikings were pirates]. In the period of the 18th and 19th Century, pirates used the graphic symbol of the flag to instill not only terror, but instant surrender.
The Movie The Kite Runner, based on Khaled Hosseinis 2003 novel is both horrific and haunting. You want to stop reading the book, but you cant put it down. The movie is just as powerful. It is about betrayal and hopes for redemption. It is about cultures in collision. It is about the terrible Taliban, and their cruelty. It is about war, occupation, and the devastation it brought on Afghanistan in the 1970s. It is also about fighter kite flying.
