    Hello. I am new to this forum.
    We are American citizens, retired, who spend 6-9 months a year in Mexico.
    May I display the US flag as well as the Mexican flag? Should they be the same size? Are they to be displayed at the same level?
    Gracias for your help.

  2. hi there Maria and welcome to the forum

    Yes - you may display both flags

    Yes - the flags should be as near to being the same size as possible

    Yes - they shouldbe displayed on the same level

    In the US the US flag is positioned on its own right - with the other flag/s to its left
    example-a house with two flagpoes on either side of the porch - as you look at the house the US flag will appear left of the other flag

    in a HOST country- where you are sdisplaying the HOST flag this flag should gain tha position of honor to the right
    so as you look at your flags on your house in Mexico (example) the Mexican flag will appear on the left and the US flag on the right

    hope that helps any more questions plz ask away :D
