Discussion in 'US Flag Display' started by sniperkittie, Oct 4, 2008.
I defer to your decision. Is the flag in the image displayed properly? (not the one on the sleeve)
8. When the flag is displayed in a manner other than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window it should be displayed in the same way, that is with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street. When festoons, rosettes or drapings are desired, bunting of blue, white and red should be used, but never the flag.
Flag Rules and Regulations
Of course, one could argue that this is not a "display" in the sense that it's meant in the flag code. The soldiers in the photo are just holding out the flag for the camera, and will probably put it away again as soon as the picture is taken. The flag code is intended to address the case when the flag is actually mounted on the wall. The code certainly does not forbid photograping the "back" of the flag!
