    if you do not have the american flag raised on the pole because @ that time you did not have one but you did have the state flag. where does that flag go? to the top of the pole or do you still leave the top position for the flag you don't have & fly the state flag where it would be if you had the american flag thank you

    Greetings, Gerald !

    Welcome to the USA-Flag-Site Forums ! :D

    If the only flag that you have is your State's Flag, and you want to fly it, then go ahead and run that puppy all the way up to the very tip-top of your flagpole and tie off the halyard !!! :eek:

    BTW : Since the next 47 days (between now and the 4th of July) are just about the MOST patriotic of the year here in the U.S.A., you should be able to find some GREAT deals on brand new American Flags !!! :cool:

    When you get your new U.S. Flag, remember to make sure that it is the same size as your State Flag or maybe one size larger: State Flag = 2.5'x4', U.S. Flag = 3x5'; State =3'x5', U.S. 4'x'6, State = 4'x6', U.S. 5'x'8', etc.

    As you probably already know, when flying your U.S. and State Flags on the same pole, the U.S. Flag always goes on top !

    I hope that helps answer your question. If not, or if you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to ask !

    Thank You for bringing your Flag-related question to our forums !
