    When the American President enters a room, “Hail to the Chief “is preceded by a fanfare of four drum and bugle ruffles and flourishes.


    The number of ruffles and flourishes indicates the importance of the person being introduced, not “Hail to the Chief”.


    The march comes from the English dramatization of Sir Walter Scott’s poem “The Lady of the Lake” and which became a popular band number for introducing any important person around 1812.


    As a fanfare, four ruffles and flourishes is the highest American honor.


    President Carter did away with “Hail to the Chief’ for a time during his term.
