    Hello ,

    I have been searching around for an answer to may question is regards of putting 2 flags on my work jacket.
    My plan is to of-course put the US Flag on top of any other international flags. However , I was not sure if what I'm doing is correct and not disrespectful to the US Flag.

    Please see photo for reference.

    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings explodingcake -- welcome to the forum!

    I was not sure if what I'm doing is correct and not disrespectful to the US Flag.

    It's not correct, but the problem is actually the reverse -- it's disrespectful to the Philippine flag. Both the US flag code and international usage say that national flags (including the US flag) should be displayed side by side at the same height. Traditionally, flying one nation's flag above another (on a ship or fort, for example) was a demonstration of victory in battle.

    Thanks for the response. Would it be better if I put the US flag on one side the Philippine flag on the other side?
