I have a question regarding flying the U.S. flag when overseas, in another country. I know that the rule here in the United States is that the U.S. flag should always been flown in a position of superiority (when flown next to another nation's flag) in other words, to the veiwer's left / flag's own right. However, what happens when abroad? Surely, it should be the host nation's flag that is flown to the viewer's left / flag's own right, as it is in their country? Many country's have the same flag protocol as we do ie) their own flag should be flown in a position of honor, and any other nation's flag on the other side. I know this is the case up in Canada, and also over in Great Britain too. I would think that to do otherwise could be seen as disrespectful to the host nation, and indeed be in breach of their own laws / rules. What is the official answer on this? I only ask because I actually travel and work overseas frequently (I'm a contractor) and like to fly the U.S. flag wherever I am temporarily living at the time, along with the local nation's flag. I have always rather liked the look of 2 crossed flags above my front door or garage.
