<< I believe that the flag
should be cradled in both arms, clutched to the chest with the forearms
crossed. Is this correct? >>
I don't believe so. I have always seen it carried under the left arm, one
corner in the hand, hypotenuse up. However, in the BSA pamphlet"Your Flag"
(1973), they show it being carried in in front on top of the upturned hands,
like a tray.
